When one receives Christ, they receive complete newness of life. It is important for every Child of God to fully know and be convinced of their new identity in Christ. The understanding of this sets the child of God in motion for a life of triumphs.
Hear, 2 Corinthians 05:17 in the New King James Version, “Therefore, if anyone is IN Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, ALL things have become new.” It’s in this newness of life that we receive a completely new identity!
Our lead verse lets us in on one of our key identities in this new nature; We are Living Stones being built up a Spiritual house to offer up spiritual sacrifices. Selah!
In the natural, stones are not considered living things, they are classified as non living. It is however amazing that in Christ, there is NO room for having non living things WHEN He saves a man/woman He makes them heirs and carriers of Eternal Life.
And NOW in using the saints as Building Pillars for the advancement of His Kingdom, He calls, makes and uses Living stones. In this we lay Foundations for Eternal Heritage. Praise the Lord!
These living stones do not build up mere houses but they build spiritual houses;Whatever is built up of these stones not only has Life but receives a Spiritual nature too.
Spirits have no limitations AND spirits do not die. As such we build Spiritual houses in our all. Neither the stones nor the building dare dies!
Allow this be the way you view yourself child of God;A Living stone building up a Spiritual house for the Lord’s glory. Nothing can dare stop your building-up when you see yourself as such. Hallelujah!
1 Peter 2:5(New Living Translation), 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.
Living stones do not build up mere houses but they build Spiritual houses;Whatever is built up of These stones not only has Life but receives a Spiritual nature.
In using the saints as Building Pillars for the advancement of His(God) Kingdom, He calls, makes and uses Living stones. In this we lay Foundations for Eternal Heritage.
