Living Stones

As you come to Him, a living stone rejected by men but in the sight of God chosen and precious, you yourselves like living stones are being built up as a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.------1 Peter 2:4-5

When we come to Him, Jesus Christ, who is the CHIEF LIVING CORNERSTONE that was and STILL is being REJECTED by mankind, we become like LIVING STONES that are laid upon the CHIEF LIVING STONE in the building of a STRONG spiritual house that cannot be destroyed.

When we are a part of HIS spiritual house, we also become a part of a HOLY PRIESTHOOD that is ABLE TO OFFER spiritual sacrifices to God.  Something that we are NOT ABLE to do apart from Jesus Christ.

So in order to be a LIVING STONE in the spiritual house, that is presently under construction, and to be a part of His HOLY PRIESTHOOD, that is the ONLY ones ABLE to come to HOLY GOD with spiritual sacrifices, you must FIRST ACCEPT the CHIEF LIVING CORNERSTONE and be WILLING to be used as a LIVING STONE in the building of His spiritual house or holy temple.

You can become one of His LIVING STONES by first:  CONFESSING your sins to God and asking for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU and is ALIVE in Heaven making intercession for you before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION.  Do it NOW, while you STILL can.  He's waiting!!!
