1 Peter 2:1-6 (New International Reader's Version)

View In My Bible
1 So get rid of every kind of evil. Stop telling lies. Don't pretend to be something you are not. Stop wanting what others have. Don't speak against each other. 2 Like babies that were just born, you should long for the pure milk of God's word. It will help you grow up as believers. 3 You can do it now that you have tasted how good the Lord is.

The Living Stone and a Chosen People

4 Christ is the living Stone. People did not accept him. But God chose him. God places the highest value on him. 5 You also are like living stones. As you come to him you are being built into a house for worship. There you will be holy priests. You will offer spiritual sacrifices. God will accept them because of what Jesus Christ has done. 6 In Scripture it says, "Look! I am placing a stone in Zion. It is a chosen and very valuable stone. It is the most important stone in the building. The one who trusts in him will never be put to shame." #1(Isaiah 28:16)#2
