The Living Stone and a Chosen People
1 Peter 2:1-10
1 Wherefore, laying aside all maliciousness, and all guile, and dissimulation, and envy, and all evil speaking,
2 As newborn babes desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby,
3 If so be that ye have tasted that the Lord is bountiful.
4 To whom coming as unto a living stone, disallowed of men, but chosen of God and precious,
5 Ye also as lively stones, be made a spiritual house, a holy Priesthood to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.
6 Wherefore also it is contained in the Scripture, Behold, I put in Sion a chief cornerstone, elect and precious, and he that believeth therein, shall not be ashamed.
7 Unto you therefore which believe, it is precious; but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner,
8 And a stone to stumble at, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient, unto the which thing they were even ordained.
9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal Priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people, that ye should shew forth the virtues of him that hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light,
10 Which in time past were not a people, yet are now the people of God; which in time past were not under mercy, but now have obtained mercy.
1 Corinthians 14:8
And also if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to battle?
"Let not Geneva be forgotten or despised. Religious liberty owes it most respect." John Adams, the second president of the United States
Before, and many years after the KJV was printed, the GENEVA BIBLE was the People's Choice, but an ungodly King made it illegal to publish it any longer: http://www.reformedreader.org/gbn/igb.htmYahoo Group Owner
