1 Peter 2:4-5 (New King James Version)

4] Coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God and precious, 5] you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.

Believers are Stones in God's Spiritual Temple

Far too many Christians question either their importance or their significance. Do you need a reminder of your significance in God's eyes? Christians are the very building stones for His vibrant, living temple. That's right, it is feeble Christians who are assembled around the Cornerstone - Jesus Christ. This Cornerstone was rejected by men, yet God placed that Stone in the place of honor and we will be vital stones in His sanctuary.

Man's misguided and amateurish blueprints for life find no place for their Creator and Redeemer. But God has other ideas. We are each part of His blueprint for a building that is built around a Stone that is precious beyond comparison and inestimable in value. What a privilege to be a part of His plan!

FOR TODAY: Thank God three times for including you in His plans.
