Living Stones

As the people of God assemble today, may each person realize the importance of, and see the value of their place as, a lively stone in the household of God. May they fit appropriately into the wall where the Lord God has set them and augment the local work and the other lively stones they have been set with.  “Present yourselves as building stones for the construction of a sanctuary vibrant with life, in which you’ll serve as holy priests offering Christ-approved lives up to God.” (1Pe.2:5, Msg)

Living Stones

stone wallWhen you think about the purpose for your life, how do you think about yourself? We think of ourselves as human, male or female, young or old but have you ever thought of yourself as a living stone? Peter says that each believer is a “living stone” in 1Pe.2:5. That is a designation with purpose. May you see the value of your place as a living stone in the household of God. May you be faithful and augment the local work where God has set you. (1Pe.2:5, Msg) Present yourselves as building stones for the construction of a sanctuary vibrant with life, in which you’ll serve as holy priests offering Christ-approved lives up to God.” We are praying you discover daily that you are a living stone.
