With the capstone, the arch is one of the most stable structures known to man, capable of bearing extreme amounts of weight over long periods of time. Without it? A heap of rubble.
Jesus called Himself the capstone, “the stone the builders rejected” (Matthew 21:42). Jesus Christ is the central, vital component to God’s plan of salvation, capable of bearing the weight of sin for all humanity for all time. Without Him? A heap of sin and pain. “Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12).
This Holy Week, ponder the magnitude of who Jesus is and what He did for us through His death and resurrection. What does He mean to you?
