Living Stones

June 6, 2010

Topic: Bible Passage: 1 Peter 2:2–2:10

1 Peter 2:2-10 Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation, 3 now that you have tasted that the Lord is good. 4 As you come to him, the living Stone—rejected by men but chosen by God and precious to him— 5 you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 6 For in Scripture it says:

   "See, I lay a stone in Zion,

      a chosen and precious cornerstone,

   and the one who trusts in him

      will never be put to shame."

7 Now to you who believe, this stone is precious. But to those who do not believe,

   "The stone the builders rejected

      has become the capstone," 8 and,

   "A stone that causes men to stumble

      and a rock that makes them fall."

They stumble because they disobey the message—which is also what they were destined for. 9 But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. 10 Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.
