This Rewind Wednesday not only revisits an old post about a cornerstone, but also provides a capstone for the series on “Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth,” the third Beatitude from Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount in Matthew 5. “Creation vs. Anti-Creation” was first posted on May 28, 2021, as the second-ever post to this blog. In it was an as-brief-as-possible history of creative forces working with and against God in this world but culminating when “All God’s people will inherit a perfect heaven and earth” where “All creative forces will be aligned to achieve perfection.”
The Beatitudes tell us the meek are blessed, but also why they are blessed: because God will give them the earth as an inheritance. Not this stinky one, but a perfected one. Heaven will be full of people made like Christ, who perfectly follow His law of self-sacrificial love. Both creation and character will be made whole. However, if we don’t agree on His definition of “perfect” then neither will we humble ourselves and be meek, nor will we inherit the earth.
Even if our early efforts at following Christ are imperfect, without those early efforts the later efforts may never happen. What can you build on the cornerstone of Christ?
