“See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone,
a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation;
the one who relies on it
will never be stricken with panic.” (Isaiah 28:16, II Peter 2:6 NIV)
Jesus is the cornerstone of the spiritual house of God that consists of all true believers (I Peter 2:5). This house is a house of the living, and Jesus Himself is “a living stone” (I Peter 2:4).
Those who are in Christ are spiritual alive. If you are reading this right now and you are not in Christ you are spiritually dead, and will face eternal death if you do not repent.
