1 Peter 2:5. you yourselves, as living stones, are built up as a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood and to offer spiritual sacrifices that are acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.

The word “holy” means to be devoted to the service of God. It comes from the German word “helig” meaning “whole.” We are to live our lives in service to God. To do this we must be whole. We must have all parts of our being functioning. Our spirits cannot function without the in-filling of God’s Holy Spirit. It is His Spirit that brings wholeness to and in us. We receive His Spirit when we receive His Son, Jesus, into our hearts, minds and lives. The question is do we open the gift of His Spirit? It takes Bible study, prayer, meditation and encouragement of others to learn how to use the power and allow the fruits of God’s Holy Spirit to grow within and flow through us in holy service to God. Let us learn, grow and serve as God’s holy priesthood.
