An excerpt from Living Stones
“Introductory Week – Who Can Be A Living Stone?”St. Peter refers to us as “Living Stones” in a spiritual house that exists on earth in union with God in heaven. By “living” he means spiritually living, breathing of God’s spirit, not just physically living, breathing the air. Some of the stones in God’s house sadly appear inanimate, like earthly rock, taking up space but not awake and shining forth with the grace of God. Sometimes the gifts of the Holy Spirit lie dormant within a soul. This can be caused by a lack of faith, limited knowledge of God’s wonderful redemptive plan, or lack of openness to the Holy Spirit’s workings.
“Exercise One: Scripture – 1 Peter 2:4-5 Come to (the Lord), a living stone, rejected by human beings but chosen and precious in the sight of God, and, like living stones, let yourselves be built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.”
“Carefully read the introduction to ‘Living Stones.’ Then pray with this scripture, noting which word or phrase seems to stand out for you. Ask the Lord how this word or phrase has meaning for you right now.”
