1 Peter 2:4-5 “As you come to him, the living Stone–rejected by men but chosen by God and precious to him–you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.”
The Scene: Rock houses–representing God’s chosen people: in the right corner of each house is the Cornerstone, Jesus Himself being the foundation, the Rock of our salvation.
Ephesians 2:19-22 “Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow citizens with God’s people and members of God’s household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone. In him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord. And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit.”
Because we are followers of Jesus the Christ we are called to be rock solid in our faith, because He is in us and we are in Him–Christ in us the hope of glory. Colossians 1:27 “To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.”
Psalm 62:2 “He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.”
