"A HOME BUILT ON THE ROCK"
Rev. Lon Lorton
Fifth Sunday in Lent
March 18, 2018
1 Peter 2:4-12
Here lies ______, whose trust was in ______.
"On Christ the solid Rock I stand. All other ground is sinking sand."
- You are a chosen person, part of a chosen people.
- You are a priest, part of a royal priesthood.
- You are a holy citizen, part of a holy nation.
- You are a person belonging to God, part of a people who belong to God.
Realize then, that we are different - aliens, strangers in this world.
Refrain from what would do war against your soul.
Live a life that brings glory to Christ so others might be drawn to Him.
Know who you are. Stop letting the world tell you who you are. You are a child of God. Your are a saint. You are secure. You are holy. You have royal blood flowing through your veins.
A lot of us Christians don't act as we should because we don't remember who (or Whose) we are.
