1 Peter 2:4-5(NKJV)
Coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God and precious, 5 you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
Do get tired of getting stepped on? Well, that’s what rocks do…get stepped on.
Do you get tired of being the ‘strong one’? That’s what rocks do…provide stability.
Do you get tired of holding everyone else up? That’s what rocks are…a firm foundation.
Christ is a living stone, but so are we…
Who are you being strong for? 1 Peter 2:5 says we are also living stones! We are a part of God’s spiritual house, and just as Jesus is our Rock…He is building us up to be rocks in the lives of others.
So, the next time you feel like you’re being stepped on or carrying everyone else’s weight. Praise God for trusting you to be a rock.
