You Are A Royal Priest
1 Peter 2:1–12
In today’s passage Peter reminds us that Christ is the corner stone, the stone the builders rejected, and we are being made into stones like Him that we might be used to build God’s Kingdom. Peter urges us to reject the passions of the flesh which wage war against our souls for we are called to a higher purpose. Read the following verse and tell me if it doesn’t just blow your mind.
1 Peter 2:9
“But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.”
