As Peter Lord has said, “the main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing.” And the main thing is Jesus Christ. He is the capstone and the cornerstone; he is the keystone and the touchstone, and every lodestone points to him. He is the rock which followed the children of Israel into the wilderness, and as they came into the promised land, the stone that Joshua raised was Jesus Christ.
He is the pattern by which this world was made, and in the end, all things will be summed up in Him. He is hope of our salvation, and his cross is the only source of our sanctification. He is the gate by which all must enter, and none who enter by any other gate have any hope of eternal life. He is the head into which the church is maturing, and when Samuel set up a stone called Ebenezer, saying “here only by your help have we come,” on that stone was also written, “Jesus Christ.”
