Friday

Read Psalm 118:21-24

21   I praise you, Lord,
because you heard me, because you have given me victory.
22   The stone which the builders rejected as worthless
turned out to be the most important of all.
23   This was done by the Lord;
what a wonderful sight it is!
24   This is the day of the Lord’s victory;
let us be happy, let us celebrate!

Think

In Jesus' final week he tells a story about tenants not responding to the messengers, or the son of the vineyard owner who come to collect the rent.  He refers to himself as 'the stone the builders rejected.'

On Good Friday we witness the rejection of Jesus.  But in hope - we anticipate his resurrection - God will take him and make him the cornerstone of his temple.

Pray

On this Good Friday I see you crucified.  I want to blame the world for what they've done to you.  But I have not made you the cornerstone of my life.

Help me to make you the cornerstone of my life.
