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.
