Building Stones

Present yourselves as building stones for the construction of a sanctuary vibrant with life.. - 1 Peter 2 v 5

Jesus is building something fantastic & awe inspiring which will eclipse every known wonder of the world and the universe. Its this thing called His Church.

To do this he needs the material and we, believe it or not, are it.

It must be one of the most amazing miracles ever seen in that Jesus takes broken people like us with all our faults and failings. With our doubts & disappointments and even our gifts and talents that we so often doubt we have. Then he makes something so beautiful and hope giving out of it.

What does he ask us to do? Just show up. Be present. So many of us go M.I.A especially when the heat is on. Maybe that's when he is forging the stone to be a life giving pillar in His relentless Church.

Immediately taken to Matthew 16 "on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of he'll shall not prevail against it." Insightful perspective on the nature of the church.
