Theme: Living Stones
Bible Verse: “You, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house.” I Peter 2:5a
You are living stones being built into a spiritual house. This metaphor is fitting for disciples of Jesus. Jesus was a builder by trade. Jesus was the stone rejected by humanity, but sent by his Father to be the capstone or cornerstone in his spiritual house. God’s spiritual house is constructed with a variety of stones, and the unseen stones that anchor the foundation are as important as the ornate stones. In the same way, each child of God is valued equally by our Father. Each is wonderfully made. Christian Education Week 2013 reminds us that Christian schools are able to bless the Builder, give thanks for Jesus the Capstone, and celebrate the gifts of every image-bearing child of God.
