Come to Jesus Christ. He is the living stone that people have rejected, but which God has chosen and highly honored. And now you are living stones that are being used to build a spiritual house. You are also a group of holy priests, and with the help of Jesus Christ you will offer sacrifices that please God. It is just as God says in the Scriptures, "Look! I am placing in Zion a choice and precious cornerstone. No one who has faith in that one will be disappointed." You are followers of the Lord, and that stone is precious to you. But it isn't precious to those who refuse to follow him. They are the builders who tossed aside the stone that turned out to be the most important one of all. They disobeyed the message and stumbled and fell over that stone, because they were doomed.
1 Peter 2: 4 - 8
There is a movie actor and professional wrestler who is called "The Rock." He is not the first man of power who used that name. Jesus Christ is the real "Rock of Ages." Jesus is the Cornerstone that holds the whole building together. Jesus is more than a powerful man. Jesus is also a powerful God, and of course the only true God!
Men may be impressed with your physical strength. God is impressed when you let His Spirit live in your heart and work His Will through your life! God wants to use you as a "spiritual rock" to be part of His "spiritual house."
You are part of what God is doing in the world when you let the Holy Spirit have His way with you! Giving your heart to Jesus is only step one on the road to Heaven! When you choose to be used by God to accomplish His Will on this earth, He becomes the King of your life and the Ruler of your heart!
"Lord Jesus, use me today to do what You want done on this earth. Praise Your Holy Name now and forever. Amen."
