1 Peter 2:4-5 (TLB)
Come to Christ, who is the living Foundation of Rock upon which God builds . . . And now you have become living building-stones for God’s use in building his house.
Wisconsin gal that I am, I once visited the House on the Rock in Spring Green, WI. It is built high atop Deer Shelter Rock, with views down to the forest below. It reminds me of this Bible passage. Stonework on a mighty stone foundation.
Alex Jordan built a house that is impressive but impractical. It’s a tourist attraction, not an eternal dwelling. Jordan’s house is a poor imitation of the real thing.
