Thought of the Day !!

You are coming to Christ, who is the living cornerstone of God's temple. He was rejected by people, but he was chosen by God for great honor. And you are living stones that God is building into his spiritual temple. What's more, you are his holy priests. Through the mediation of Jesus Christ, you offer spiritual sacrifices that please God.
                                                             1 Peter 2:4-10 (NLT)

God promised to build a great nation out of Abraham’s descendents.  When Jesus came he proclaimed that all who would believe in Him could be a part of this fellowship that was promised to Abraham.  And Paul brought this message to the world. 

So here we are.  Many generations later we are added to the list of a whole host of others who have been a part of the royal priesthood of believers.  Our qualification for membership – we must believe.  Our dues – they are our lives.  And as we give our lives over to Jesus, we become part of something much bigger than you and me.  We become a small stone in a spiritual temple that’s made up of all the saints.

We are all priests that get our instructions and our formation from the foundation, or the cornerstone, which is Jesus Christ.  And as such we are to go into a darkened world and change it (instead of letting it change us). 

You have the choice.  You’re either a member of God’s kingdom of priests or you’re a creature of this world.  Which will you choose?

In the love of Christ,
