This past weekend, we learned about what it means to be seen as living stones and how that shapes the way we think about our earthly life (1 Peter 2:1-12). As we are being built, we first learned that it is guaranteed for a Christian to be rejected by the world just as Christ was rejected. Secondly, we learned that we are to offer spiritual sacrifices where we surrender our lives totally for the glory of God. And lastly, we learned that we are to live with eternity in mind, remembering that we are merely passing by in this world, and our true home is with Jesus forever. In all of this, God purposed to glorify Himself through His work of Salvation where we are living stones being built upon Christ our cornerstone.
