Bible Reading – 1 Peter 2

Living stones (2:1-10). As the Lord is our living hope, we are living stones. As the Lord is the bedrock of faith, we are to be a chip off the ole block (if you will; cf. Ephesians 5:1). As living stones, we need food and the only food that can penetrate a stone is the food that can make a rock bring forth water

Glorifying the Lord in the life lived (2:11-25). As people speak against the godly saint, the Lord knows the accuracy of the accusation. Those who speak against the Lord’s servant will, at the right time, be called to account by the Lord (in whatever manner the Lord chooses to do this). While opportunity is ours, however, we want to be sure that the life they see in us to criticize is the life of Christ
