Old Testament Lesson

We see a theme begin to emerge here in Isaiah that we see in all the prophets and all throughout the Bible. Those that turn to God, they will be restored.  No matter how far they may be from God.  No matter what they have done.  No matter any of these things. All that turn back to God will find God running to them.  

We serve a God that is always there, that will never turn away from His people that will never give up on His people, that will never forsake His people.  He longs to restore them, to save them, to love them. Today, God is just waiting to show His love to you!  

New Testament Lesson

Paul reminds the people that he didn't just tell them that he loved them, he showed them his love through his actions. In our world today, what we need are not just those that tell people that they love them, they show it. Today, in our lives may we tell others just how much God loves and how much we love them. But, even more so, let us love them.  Let us love each other.  Let us forgive each other. Let us show God's love to one another by loving one another.  

Gospel Lesson

The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone.  Jesus was rejected by many in His day.  He is now the cornerstone of the church, and the cornerstone of our lives.  He is the foundation.  He is the one that is all rests upon.  He is the rock.  He is the one that it is all build upon and around.  He is the one. 

Today, and each day, may He be your cornerstone.  May He be your foundation.
