April 7, 2019 – Fifth Sunday in Lent
Psalm 126; Old Testament: Isaiah 43:16-21; Gospel: Luke 20:9-20
“Cornerstone of Salvation” - Sermon Text: Luke 20:17b - Rev. Shayne Jonker
“The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone” (Luke 20:17b). The Messiah of Israel, Jesus, is a rejected Messiah. One of the architects and builders of Israel thought unfit to be the cornerstone, but God sizes up the angles differently. This Jesus, born of the Virgin, crucified and risen, reigning at the right hand of God, the One who baptizes you and forgives you and feeds you is the rejected Rock of Israel and the Cornerstone of your salvation.
