The Chief Cornerstone

Ephesians 2:20

And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief cornerstone;

When we look at the name Chief Cornerstone for Jesus what come to mind? Do you see a chief cornerstone as the head of something, a sure foundation? Is the chief cornerstone something/someone from which everything rests? Do you see the chief cornerstone as being reliable as there is no failure in the head? What comes to my mind is that Jesus is the foundation of all life as all that exists has its beginning and ending in Him. This includes both physical and spiritual life in that all who have accepted Jesus as his or her personal Savior is assured of spending eternity with Him. When I look at Jesus as the Chief Cornerstone I see Him as my personal Savior who knew from the beginning of time that I would be born and in need of salvation. Jesus the Chief Cornerstone as He is the one who meets all my needs and loves you and I unconditionally.
What makes Jesus the Chief Cornerstone? Jesus is the Chief Cornerstone because He was present during creation and will be present when all who persevere to the end will see Him. He is the written Word as His is God (John 1:1). Jesus is the one who bled and died on the cross for the sins of the world as He was the only one found worthy to meet God the Father's requirement to atone sin. Jesus is the Chief Cornerstone because He is the firstborn from the dead. All who believe in Jesus died to sin with Him and was raised with Him to live forever. Jesus is the only one who you and I can take all our problems to and get an answer.
Another point on Jesus being the Chief Cornerstone is because Jesus is the foundation of the church and all churches who have Jesus as its foundation have committed themselves to following the doctrines of the New Testament teachings and revelations concerning Christ and the gospel (Acts 2:42). It was Jesus who established the New Testament church as He told Peter and the rest of the twelve disciples that Peter's faith confession that "He is the Christ" is what Christ's church were built and not even the gates of hell would be able to destroy His church. What a foundation!
To reject Jesus as the foundation is rejecting Jesus as Lord (John 16:13-15; 1 Corinthians 14:36-38; Galatians 1:9-11). This holds true for all who fails to accept Jesus as Lord of his or her life.
Let's close this discussion by saying Jesus is the Chief Cornerstone as there can be no surer foundation in which all things are built--physical and spiritual.
Any house that is built on Christ is solid.
