1 Peter 2:1–5 (ESV)
A Living Stone and a Holy People
2 So put away all malice and all deceit and hypocrisy and envy and all slander. 2 Like newborn infants, long for the pure spiritual milk, that by it you may grow up
into salvation— 3 if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is good.
4 As you come to him, a living stone rejected by men
but in the sight of God chosen and precious, 5 you yourselves like living stones are being built up as a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
Like infants crave milk, we too should crave spiritual milk… the Word of God, forgiveness, eternal life, and heaven (the Kingdom of God). If we are not seeking
these things, then we have spiritual problems. We are a living stone, chosen by God.
I pray: O Lord, help me to keep my eyes focused on you and let
your Word shape me according to your will, not mine. Amen.
