Scripture: Isaiah 28:14-16

Isaiah 28:14-16 says, “Therefore hear the word of the Lord, you scornful men, Who rule this people who are in Jerusalem, Because you have said, “We have made a covenant with death, And with Sheol we are in agreement. When the overflowing scourge passes through, It will not come to us, For we have made lies our refuge, And under falsehood we have hidden ourselves. Therefore thus says the Lord God: Behold, I lay in Zion a stone for a foundation, A tried stone, a precious cornerstone, a sure foundation; Whoever believes will not act hastily.” We know who the stone is that the Most High God laid as a foundation. The precious cornerstone is Christ. But how do we build Christ in ourselves and in others? What is the way that God ordained for us to build Christ in us? One key element is praying in tongues! Isaiah 28 not only speaks about the cornerstone which is Christ, it also speaks about that cornerstone being praying in the Spirit that brings us into the fullness of Christ. How are we doing with that cornerstone? What habits have we formed to invite our Precious Cornerstone to be built in us?
