Today's reading: 1 Peter 2:4-12

I'm on the road today in California at the Thrive Christian Leadership Conference so I'm keeping the blog pretty short.

Peter refers to believers in Christ as a holy people being built up as a spiritual house to offer sacrifices that are acceptable and pleasing to God. Peter then goes on to tell us that the honor is for those who have placed their faith in Jesus.

What encouragement do you draw from this passage? Tami

Am really encouraged by the passage, I have been struggling with giving acceptable praise to God and even questioning myself but here Peter is saying that am "being built" up as a spiritual house to offer sacrifices that is acceptable and pleasing to God, hence showing forth acceptable praise. It is really a process so I need to gracefully depend upon him to walk me through and never resist Gods way.


The picture of community here is awesome. We ourselves are one brick among many building a spiritual house--Christ's Church. We're not islands to ourselves; we're made for community.
