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. There are those who rejected Him. The Jewish nation rejected Him. Their rejection did not change God’s plan. God is working to build a spiritual house with Jesus being the cornerstone of that edifice. God is building this spiritual house with us. We are to be lively stones. This means that we are to be living the way God instructs us to live. Let’s reach others with the Gospel. As reach others, God then adds to this spiritual house that He is presently building. This makes us workmen with God.
