The corporate aspect of God’s full salvation

(8/9) |

Verses:1_Peter 2:1 ~ 2:12
Key Verse:4-5. Coming to Him, a living stone, rejected by men but with God chosen and precious, You yourselves also, as living stones, are being built up as a spiritual house into a holy priesthood to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
Topic:The corporate aspect of God’s full salvation
Emphasis:When the Lord Jesus saw Peter the first time, He told him “you shall be called Peter”. (John 1:42) Peter means stone. Therefore Peter told us here that the Lord Jesus is the living stone. Coming to Him, we ourselves also, as living stones, are being built up as a spiritual house.
Meditate:The “ spiritual house” needs “spiritual sacrifices”. Verse 9 says “ you may tell out the virtues of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light”. Think about the relationship between the two.
Prayer:Thank the Lord that I can participate in the “royal priesthood”. May the Lord train me and all the saints that we may offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God.
Hymn:839 Lord, Thou art a potter skilled
