Rubble or carved stone?
"So, brothers, I beg you by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy, pleasing to God, which is your rational worship."
Romans 12: 1
To be a House of God we must be an altar to God. Where we are the living sacrifice for Him. May Christ live in us.
Thus the Holy Spirit will fill us.
It is a process that we must take from God to be that house where He dwells.
To be that living sacrifice, you have to leave behind many things: the old nature, pride, self, independence, thoughts, feelings that are not of God.
To be living stones in the House of God (the church) we must fit into it to occupy a place in the building not of material, but the spiritual, where the main angle is Christ.
Separated from the building we will be rubble, but united to the building we will be a fundamental piece in the structure.
I encourage you this afternoon with this Word.
What do you want to be? Rubble or carved stone in the building of Christ.
To be God's house, it must first be a sacrificial altar.
I bless you with the peace of Jesus Christ.
