The Living Stone, Rejected Because He Loves Us

“Welcome to the living Stone, the source of life. The workmen took one look and threw it out; God set it in the place of honor. Present yourselves as building stones for the construction of a sanctuary vibrant with life, in which you’ll serve as holy priests offering Christ-approved lives up to God.”
(1 Peter 2:4-5 The Message)

The Living Stone

Rock of our salvation

Rock of our refuge




The source of life

And yet rejected 

So we wouldn’t be

Chosen by the Father

To suffer in our place

For our sins

Because He loves us

So completely

He longs for our hearts

Our lives

Mind, body, soul

To be building stones

Devoted to Him

To His glory

Can We Give Up All for Jesus? 

“But the Lord has become my High Tower and Defense,
and my God the Rock of my refuge.” (Psalm 94:22 AMP)

Rejection hurts so deeply

But we can be safe and loved

In our Rock of refuge

And remember

The Rock of our salvation

Who was rejected

More than all of us together

Even God forsook Him

So we would never be forsaken

By God and His forgiving love

Even if people do

Because we are His beloved

His cherished ones

Incomprehensible love

For you

For me

God so loved

Do you feel forsaken?

Do you struggle with rejection?

I hope you find beautiful soul rest in these truths!
