Scripture of the Week

"As you come to him, the living Stone—rejected by men but chosen by God and precious to him— you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ." I Peter 2:4-5

Living Stones. You know, scripturally, there are two purposes for stones. Stones were used to destroy, as in to take someone out of the village and stone them. Or they were used to build up, as in a strong fortress, a wall around a city, a shelter. The question this week is very simple, very straight forward: Which kind of stone are you? Are you allowing Christ to use you to uplift, encourage, instruct and train others in righteousness? Are you a shelter for people when they are wounded? Or are you the one hurling the stones?

This is from the Scripture of the Week over at A Faith Perspective, the faith blog sponsered by Scrapbook News and Review. For more resources, community, and Spirit, we invite you to come over and join us!
