Why is it that people who are filthy rich are also some of the most desperate, lonely and unhappy people on the planet? I mean, if someone is a multi-millionaire, they can get whatever they want. They can engineer their life according to their own pleasures and tastes. Why doesn’t that make people happy? We naturally assume that the way to be happy is to get our own way all the time, but it never really works as well as we think it would. The question is, why not!? What’s going on? Well, I can actually answer that question in one word - Cornerstone. That’s a word that Jesus used to describe Himself. A cornerstone was the most integral piece of a building’s structure. The whole thing was built around that stone and it was the most important part holding everything together. Jesus called Himself the Cornerstone because He built the universe. It operates according to His design. His life is an essential part of not only our survival, but also of our satisfaction. We can’t make it without Him, and life outside of His plan just doesn’t work at all. Jesus said that people have rejected Him, which is kind of like a building throwing out its’ own foundation. The whole thing will simply fall to pieces. We will either allow Jesus to break down and then rebuild us, or we will be crushed. Life only works with Him at the center of it. This is His universe and we can’t leave. That’s why serving people makes you happier than being selfish. That’s why laying your life down feels better than getting your way. You live in Jesus’ world - and that’s what His heart is like. He’s making us like Himself.
