1 Peter 2:1-10
“Living stones, and a holy priesthood”
“You also, as living stones, are being built up as a spiritual house for a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.” (v. 5)


Peter says that we should come to Christ through reading His word.
As we pursue His word, we grow in respect to our salvation.
We are called “living stones,” as the true living stone, Jesus Christ, lives in us and transforms us.
As living stones, we make up a holy priesthood, offering pleasing sacrifices to God through Jesus Christ.


I need to consider what pleasing sacrifices are to God.
As a living stone, I want to offer these sacrifices in my daily life.
One will be proclaiming His “excellencies” to others. (v. 9)


Lord, thank you for making me a living stone by your grace.
Help me to live as a part of your holy priesthood by proclaiming your excellencies to others.
