I am currently working on a sermon on Isaiah 28, with a focus on verse 16: “Behold, I am laying in Zion a stone, a tested stone, A costly cornerstone for the foundation, firmly placed.  He who believes in it will not be disturbed.” You will be able to read that sermon here with more discussion on this stone—Jesus Christ in whom we will not be disappointed.
