My Musings – “Now to you who believe, this stone is precious. But to those who do not believe, ‘the stone the builders rejected has become the capstone,’ and, ‘a stone that causes men to stumble and a rock that makes them fall’ ” (1 Peter 2:7–8, NIV 1984).
Come To Him – The Spirit and the bride say “Come!” And let him who hears say “Come!” Whoever is thirsty, let him come; and whoever wishes, let him take the free gift of the water of life. (Revelation 22:17, NIV 1984)
Built Into A Spiritual House – So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in Him, rooted and built up in Him. (Colossians 2:7, NIV 1984)
Offering Spiritual Sacrifices – Therefore, I urge you brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God – which is your Spiritual act of worship. (Romans 12:1, NIV 1984)
Cornerstone – A cornerstone is the visible support on which the rest of the building relies for strength and stability.
Capstone – Refers to the final stone which completes (and supports) an arch.
My Advice – Christ will either be a stumbling-block that you fall over, or a cornerstone that becomes that capstone as He builds you up. The choice is yours. What do you choose? You can be “a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy” (1 Peter 2:9–10, NIV 1984).
