I heard a local story in the news the other day that I found somewhat enlightening. Not only because of the locality of the story but as I listened I began to realize that what was being said by the professional researchers was confirming what we know are truths in the verses of the Bible

The story involved the redeeming of a stone quarry that had been considered for housing and business development in Stafford County, Virginia, a boyhood home of George Washington. The historical worker, Jane Connor has been working for 30 years to restore the site of the quarry….now this part intrigued me….where the Corner Stone and the Foundation Stones of the White House were quarried over 200 years ago by slave labor.
Ms Connor said that George Washington, himself, put aside the stones from his own estate’s quarry in Mt. Vernon because that stone was too soft and instead opted for the STRONG STONE of the quarry in Stafford County called Aquia Stone.
Jane Connor went on to say that “the founding fathers of our nation knew that the Foundation Stone and the corner stone had to be absolutely perfect to become the foundation of the iconic buildings of the White House and the Capitol Building because it was to endure through the ages and would be representing our Liberty and Freedom to all the world.”

I immediately thought about the Lord Jesus Christ, our Corner Stone ….the perfect Stone, the strong Foundation of our faith. Father God knew that the foundation of the Church of Jesus Christ, the Body of Christ must have a firm foundation and that Rock is Jesus Christ. And although His ancient nemesis rejected Him, He is the Steady Rock Whose work upon the cross was a faultless work…the Perfect Corner Stone and Foundation that would represent for all eternity our Liberty and Freedom in Christ Jesus to all the world.
I wrote a song awhile ago that saidOH ROCK OH STEADY ROCKAND FAULTLESS WAS YOUR WORKYOU SHED YOUR PRECIOUS BLOODIN THE COVENANTAL CUTTING
Jesus is our PERFECT CORNER STONE, THE ROCK
