Isaiah 28:16 – A Sure Foundation

Isaiah 28:16
16 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.

-A foundation is defined as “the lowest load-bearing part of a building.”  Jesus is the “Sure Foundation” that has been laid by God the Father and upon which everything depends.  Think about that.  Moral surety is not the foundation of Christianity; guiding philosophy is not the foundation of Christianity; religious precept is not the foundation of Christianity.  Our whole religion rises and falls on one thing- Jesus Christ.  The Bible teaches that we “can do all things through Christ” (Philippians 4:13), but Jesus Himself warns us that “without me ye can do nothing.” (John 15:5)  To have Jesus is to have absolute certainty that your past, present and eternity is secure; but not having Jesus means you have nothing.
