5 you also, as living stones, are being built up as a spiritual house for a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 2:5 (NASB)
Have you ever thought that God takes time to build you?
He created each of your features. With all of your uniqueness. There is no one else that has your fingerprints. You were specially created to be you.
And now our Father is building you to look like Jesus through the difficulties you face. Even boredom. Even ordinary days.
Even when you come to the end of your days, God has plans for you beyond this life!
Let us come back to this truth; God is faithfully completing a work in US!
Thanks Pastor Phil
The song “He’s still working on me” comes to mind immediately. I’m so glad he’s so full of grace & mercy towards me, not to mention patience. I’m so glad that “He who began a good work in me will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” Philippians 1:6.
Keep on building, Lord!
