God is working His plan. I think we forget that it is God working a plan. It is God that is at work and we help him with His plan. If you listen to some people, it seems like the reverse is true. We are building the Kingdom, and we need God’s help?
1 Peter 2:4-6 – As you come to him, a living stone rejected by men but in the sight of God chosen and precious, you yourselves like living stones are being built up as a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
God is building His house. You are a brick in His house. The quality of every individual brick determines the strength of the building. Your disciplines, the time you spend in prayer, the ministry quality and even the faith you have determine our strength as a group. You directly influence the impact of the whole church. You are a living stone, whether you like it or not. Can God use you to build a strong wall, or are you allergic to other stones?
