Lively Stones

1 Peter 2:4-5 KJV To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious, [5] Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ is the Chief Cornerstone of the church. He is both the foundation and builder of the church (Matthew 16:18). It is interesting what He chooses to build with. He chooses us. We are imperfect sinners who are not in the least worthy of any of His grace and mercy. But He loved us enough to die for our sins and then chooses to use us to build His church. We should allow the Lord to mold us into whatever He needs to build His church. We should not be dictating what we should be. That is God’s domain not ours. Let’s be the lively stones He intends for us to be.
