The Living Stone
A Sermon on 1 Peter 2:4-6
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. For it stands in Scripture:
“Behold, I am laying in Zion a stone,
a cornerstone chosen and precious,
and whoever believes in him will not be put to shame.” (ESV)
Entering the community of God; the centrality of Christ essential; preparing a people for God; the work of Christ; how God forms His people through Christ; the way of entry opened by Christ.
