John 14:1 Jesus said, "Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me." Christ Jesus, the Chief Cornerstone
Isaiah 28:16 So this is what the Sovereign LORD says: "See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation; the one who trusts will never be dismayed. (NIV)
If we establish Jesus Christ as the cornerstone, or foundation upon which we build our lives, through His strength we can endure and overcome life’s trials and tribulations.
When I Am Weak, Then I Am Strong
2 Corinthians 12:9-10 But he [Jesus] said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

Becoming Part of God's Family
How do we become one of God's children and enter His family?
We need to recognise that 'all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,' Romans 3:23. (NIV)
We need to 'Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord,' Acts 3:19 (NIV)
We need to believe in Jesus. 'For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life.' John 3:16 (AMP)
Romans 10:9 (NIV) tells us, 'That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.'
That's how we enter God's family. 'Yet to all who received him [Jesus], to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.' John 1:12 (NIV)
you. your baby. your life.
