1 Peter 2:5-9
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.
6 Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold,
I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious:
and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded.
7 Unto you therefore which believe he is precious:
but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the
builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner,
8 And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them
which stumble at the word, being disobedient:
whereunto also they were appointed.
9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood,
an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth
the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into
his marvellous light:
LIGHT from the WORD.
There are only three major things to consider when building
a house: Foundation, Materials, and Workmanship.
If the foundation is not solid, the house will not endure.
If the right materials are not used, the house will not endure.
If the workmanship is slack, the house will not endure.
It's the same with building your SPIRITUAL house!
The FOUNDATION must be SURRENDER to Jesus as
LORD of your life!
And how many of us can truthfully say that we always build
upon Christ as the foundation?
Do we not substitute our own personal wants and desires at times?
Remember, Jesus is the MASTER CARPENTER!
We are only WORKERS!
We must build according to HIS specifications!
The MATERIALS must be His Holy WORD!
The manner in which we LEARN about Jesus is to
STUDY His Word!
The principles we learn in His Word are the
MATERIALS by which we build our lives.
The materials of faith, hope and love ENDURE forever!
The WORKMANSHIP must be diligence in applying
God's principles to our daily living!
We must admit sometimes we are inattentive, lax and
apathetical in our labor for Christ.
We must work the materials into our lives wisely and
Your spiritual house should be beautiful TODAY, and
ENDURE for ETERNITY!
