Believers The Lively Stones Of Christ

1 Peter 2:5

Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.

Our study text is a continuation of verse four which states that Christ is the living stone who was disallowed by men, but chosen by God as He was precious to God the father. Therefore, believers become the lively stones of God through the chief corner stone-Jesus Christ our Savior. That said, as believers come to Christ the person becomes members of Christ's spiritual house and God's kingdom.

Believers being lively stones and of the holy priesthood we offer spiritual acceptable sacrifices unto God as they too come through Christ our Savior and head of God's spiritual house.

What are spiritual sacrifices? They are dying daily to fleshy desires while seeking to live holy and righteous lives before God the Father. Believers offer their bodies as instruments of righteousness with the transformation of one's mind by confirming to Gods holy laws (Romans 12:1-2). Believers yield control of one's body to the residing Holy Spirit who is our guide, teacher and holy compass while here on earth. Believers are to make intercessory prayer for self and others the world over (Colossians 4:12). Believers are to proclaim the word of God as well as praying for its success (v.9; 3:15 2 Thessalonians 3:11).

Believers as the lively stones of God's spiritual house bask in His glory, thank Him for salvation through Jesus Christ and being His adopted sons and daughters.

This is quite an impressive message. The reader can ask him/herself whether he is a true believer when reading your article. You have given a very clear insight into what a true believer is. Thank you.
