“As you come to him, a living stone rejected by men but in the sight of God chosen and precious, you yourselves like living stones are being built up as a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.”

1 Peter 2:4-5 ESV

An experienced mason building a house carefully hand-selects each stone for just the right fit for each particular position in a wall. Likewise, the Heavenly Father handpicks each of us as Christ-followers in our roles for building the house of God.

Just as Jesus was handpicked for suffering, I may find rejection and pain in this life of faith as a living stone. My value comes in knowing I am who God says I am: chosen, top-shelf, and He’s using me to build a royal priesthood of worshippers!

May it give you confidence to know you are not a random rock crammed into place, but a highly prized precious stone valued by your Maker. 🚦
