The Great Deconstruction
“As you come to him, a living stone rejected by men but in the sight of God chosen and precious, you yourselves like living stones are being built up as a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.”—1 Peter 2:4-5
I don’t know what you perceive about the present, but I believe we are entering a long season of deconstruction. One that will outright reject and criticize our former ways. During this season, many biblical beliefs, truths, and worldviews will be rejected. As a result, many of us will feel rejected as men, husbands, fathers, and leaders. But remember, during this deconstruction, the world is not rejecting us; instead, they are rejecting God. And while the world rejects God’s truth, this doesn’t invalidate his truth. It also does not change the truth about us because God sees things differently. In his sight, we are chosen and precious. And with men, God is building something—a spiritual house. Wait no longer in this present deconstruction, and join the brotherhood of holy believers being built by the hand of God.
ASK THIS: Are you feeling deconstructed?
DO THIS: Let God construct something new in you and with you.
PRAY THIS: God, I feel attacked and brutalized by our world. Anchor me in your truth and desires during this unsettling time. Sharpen my mind, ready my courage, and make my actions pure. May I be one of many men who stand on your truth. Use me to construct something living and new.
