Jesus was chosen and precious so that we could be chosen and precious. This week we begin a new message series about Jesus and us. We celebrate the gift of Resurrection and the new life that it brings to us and the world.
Continuing in the letter of 1 Peter, the writer speaks to the importance of moving from being new followers of Christ, to being transformed by God’s salvation and grace. The Resurrected Christ is our cornerstone and came to build His church into living stones. As disciples of Jesus Christ, we are to put our faith to action. We are to follow Jesus’ example and be living stones. We do this best when we engage in various “means of grace.” Practices that help us to engage with the grace of God and allows the Holy Spirit to work in our lives.
