Bible: 1 Peter 2:1-5
2:1 So get rid of 1 all evil and all deceit and hypocrisy and envy and all slander. 2:2 And 2 yearn 3 like newborn infants for pure, spiritual milk, 4 so that by it you may grow up to 5 salvation, 6 2:3 if you have experienced 7 the Lord’s kindness. 8
A Living Stone, a Chosen People
2:4 So as you come to him, 9 a living stone rejected by men but 10 chosen and priceless 11 in God’s sight, 2:5 you yourselves, as living stones, are built up as a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood and to offer 12 spiritual sacrifices that are acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
