The Good Shepherd

He is the stone rejected by you, the builders, which has become the cornerstone.There is no salvation through anyone else, nor is there any other name under heaven given to the human race by which we are to be saved.”
Acts 4:11-12

Little did Peter know how true his words have become. Jesus is the cornerstone to our faith. Yet Peter is the cornerstone of our Church, through him it has been built up by his proclamation of Jesus' saving grace. Through Jesus we have our faith, faith of our church. This is our faith and we are to proclaim it too. Just as Peter was given the task of following through with God's plan, so are we.

It is exactly through Jesus we will find salvation, as Peter proclaimed it is not through anyone else, nor will there ever be either. So if we all prefer following the devil, guaranteed our life will not be eternal. I suppose then, we do not want eternal life or salvation then, we all seem to want and need the darkness too much.

Do we wonder how many wolves have scattered the flock of Jesus? Many I would say. Look how divided we all are. How many religions have popped-up, all because they wanted it their way and not God's way. There are those who could not agree, so off to start their own, under their own rules. If we don't like what Jesus says to us, off we go in search of someone or something that will agree with us. Jesus stands by us no matter what we do. He is the Good Shepherd, he will search and find each of us, that have left his side. I'm personally glad that he cared enough about me to bring me to his side. He did it for me, he will do it for you. He wants us with him, not against him. Let him come into your heart and bring you back home too. You'll never regret it.

Remember it is Jesus'saving faith that is the cornerstone.
