1 Peter 2:5 (VOICE) Like living stones, let yourselves be assembled into a spiritual house…
Beloved, you are called to be like Me, life-giving and steadfast – your foundation solid in Me. And just as I embody oneness in My godhead, so you must embody oneness in the Body of Christ. This requires unity. This requires intentionally cultivating harmony.
You are called to be known by your love, and when you walk in that love it creates a safe place for those in need. My Body should be that safe place – their unity should create that spiritual house for people in need of a touch from heaven to gather. So be intentional to cultivate harmony, and reflect Me.
1 Peter 2:4-5, 9 (VOICE) Come to Him—the living stone—who was rejected by people but accepted by God as chosen and precious. Like living stones, let yourselves be assembled into a spiritual house, a holy order of priests who offer up spiritual sacrifices that will be acceptable to God through Jesus the Anointed. But you are a chosen people, set aside to be a royal order of priests, a holy nation, God’s own; so that you may proclaim the wondrous acts of the One who called you out of inky darkness into shimmering light.
