Living Stones Beautifully Laid

1 Peter 2:4-9 NASB … As Living Stones
4 And coming to Him as to a living stone which has been rejected by men, but is choice and precious in the sight of God, 5 you also, as living stones, are being built up as a spiritual house for a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 6 For this is contained in Scripture: “Behold, I lay in Zion a choice stone, a precious corner stone, and he who believes in Him will not be disappointed.” 7 This precious value, then, is for you who believe; but for those who disbelieve, “The stone which the builders rejected, this became the very corner stone,” 8 and, “A stone of stumbling and a rock of offense”;
for they stumble because they are disobedient to the word, and to this doom they were also appointed. 9 But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God’s own possession, so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light …

Living stones placed with care
A spiritual temple
A holy house
Beautifully built and laid
Upright, cut straight, true to plumb –2Tim 2:15
Resting secure upon the Corner Stone. –Eph 4:14-16

Living stones formed to show forth His praise
Streams in the desert –Isa 43:20-21
Marvelous light
Proclaiming the goodness of God
Through Jesus Christ sacrifices of praise
The fruit of lips giving thanks to His name!He 13:15
