Stones, Not Bricks
Morning Thought: Stone walls are different than brick walls. Bricks usually are all the same. Stones, however, are all different shapes, sizes and colours. Instead of bricks, God chooses to build with stones, “living stones” to be exact. Through Christ you are his “living stones,” different from your brothers and sisters, but chosen to be together. The man-made church is constructed through bricks of conformity, the Spirit-made church is built through stones of diversity. “You also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ” (1 Peter 2:5, NIV).
