From our Family and Music Minister
This past Sunday, we sang one of my favorite songs during worship and I was just singing through a part of the first verse.
In Christ alone, my hope is found. He is my light, my strength, my song. This cornerstone, this solid ground, Firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
It’s incredible to me how much theology you can get from the lyrics of a song. As you worship through singing each week, I hope you are not just singing lyrics to a familiar tune, but that you genuinely mean what you are singing from your heart…that Jesus is truly your cornerstone.
What is a cornerstone? The cornerstone is the first stone set in constructing a masonry foundation. All other stones will be placed in reference to this stone, thus determining the position of the entire structure. Therefore, when you sing about Jesus being your cornerstone or foundation, you are saying your whole life revolves around Jesus. Even though it is just a simple statement that I am sure you have heard many times, how often do you honestly apply this concept to your life?
When you set the priorities for the week for you and your families, do you focus on Christ first? Likewise, do your opinions have a Biblical basis when expressing your views on current cultural affairs? If Christ is indeed what you base your life on, your daily focus always contains Him. This is because you depend on your relationship with Him for your true source of happiness and fulfillment. This is important, and the song’s second line tells us why.
“Firm through the fiercest drought and storm.”
Life is going to be full of trials and storms. They will come in many various forms and times. The only way to remain standing through these trials is by having your life built on a solid foundation. If you have a weak foundation of faith, you will not be left standing when the storms of life hit. Christ will always remain firm in your life no matter what drought or storm comes your way.
Everything I reminded you of in my article does not come across as anything new to any of you. But I genuinely hope you will self-evaluate and truly see how well you are doing. Not how well you were doing a year ago or how well you will do in the future, but how well you are doing at keeping Christ in the center now. I am sure most of us have known what a STOP sign means from a very young age and the consequences of ignoring the sign. But how many times when we are in a hurry, do we only half obey what it tells us? I challenge you to keep Christ as your solid foundation and not let Him become a crumbling foundation in your life that can easily break when too much pressure is applied.
