1 Peter 2:1-6 GW

1 So get rid of every kind of evil, every kind of deception, hypocrisy, jealousy, and every kind of slander.
2 Desire God's pure word as newborn babies desire milk. Then you will grow in your salvation.
3 Certainly you have tasted that the Lord is good!
4 You are coming to Christ, the living stone who was rejected by humans but was chosen as precious by God.
5 You come to him as living stones, a spiritual house that is being built into a holy priesthood. So offer spiritual sacrifices that God accepts through Jesus Christ.
6 That is why Scripture says, "I am laying a chosen and precious cornerstone in Zion, and the person who believes in him will never be ashamed."
