1 Peter 2:5
You also, as living stones, are built up as a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. (WEB)
Every believer is part of God's building. We are living stones joined together to be an eternal expression of God's goodness. As we present our bodies as living sacrifices today (Romans 12:1), may we all be reminded of who we truly are in the sight of the living God. We are His holy priesthood, completely accepted in the Beloved.
My prayer today is that we would see ourselves as our Father sees us. Each one of us is an essential building block of an eternal spiritual house dedicated to the glory of God. Without even one stone, the building is not complete. May we all have courage today to live out our unique purpose and destiny so that we can do the good works that our Father created for us to do in Christ.
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared before that we would walk in them. (WEB)
For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. (NLT)
For we are God’s [own] handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live].
