1 Peter 2:5 Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.
We sometimes forget that the Church Jesus is building is not in fact a building. It is made up of those people who accept Him and are obedient to His teachings.
We are a spiritual House. Living stones that make up the greatest living organization in the history of the World. We should be excited to be a part of this great body.
We are a Holy Priesthood. Saved by God's marvelous grace and we should be offering our reasonable service as an acceptable sacrifice to God. Just what is reasonable service? Jesus paid our sin debt on the cross and offers salvation to all who believe. Is this just worth an hour or two each week or is it worth a dedicated life, spreading the message of salvation to a world that is so much in need of a Savior?
I believe if you really think about it you will find the right answer in your heart.
