1 Peter 2:9: “But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.”

God is currently in the process of building a house. An expert builder, the house is going to be a beautiful construction. God knows to start with a good cornerstone. About cornerstones Wikipedia writes:

“The cornerstone is the first stone set in the construction of a masonry foundation. All other stones will be set in reference to this stone, thus determining the position of the entire structure.”* [*Source: Wikipedia; web link: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cornerstone#:~:text=The%20cornerstone%20(or%20foundation%20stone,position%20of%20the%20entire%20structure ]

God made Jesus the cornerstone. He then continues with people like you and me, people who love Him; they are called “Living Stones”. Every Living Stone contributes to the completion of this extraordinary building.

Jesus started a new movement that still rocks the world. According to a 2012 Pew Research Center survey, there are 2.4 billion followers worldwide. If current trends continue Christians will remain the world’s largest religion, and, by 2050, the Christian population is expected to be close to 3 billion.

Numbers aside – God would have gone through with the movement even if only a few had jumped on the bandwagon. He is not interested in numbers; He is interested in people. Each person is important to Him.

So, what kind of building is God working on? Our building is called “Nation of Believers”; it is God’s special possession and this is what it stands for: a shelter for the orphans; a safe haven for the rejected; a place to commune with the Almighty.

As believers, we fight for those who cannot fight for themselves. Human kindness mirrors God’s kindness. Without kindness, this world would be a very dark place. We are invited to spread the light and become part of the kindness movement. God started it, and He is not finished yet. To this day He adds Living Stones to His wonderful building when He calls people out of the darkness into His wonderful light.
