A Stone of Stumbling

Other Sermons

A Sermon on 1 Peter 2:6-8

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.”

So the honor is for you who believe, but for those who do not believe,

“The stone that the builders rejected
has become the cornerstone,”


“A stone of stumbling,
and a rock of offense.”

They stumble because they disobey the word, as they were destined to do. (ESV)

Who are the 'builders' who rejected Christ? who are the builders today; and why do they reject Him? a rock of offence and a stone of stumbling to many; He demands purity and obedience.
