As you come to him, the living Stone —rejected by humans but chosen by God and precious to him— you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.

– 1 Peter 2:4-5 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

Many people refer to the church as a building. They may say, “That is where I go to church”, but Peter has a different view of the people of God. He sees a building as well, but this one is made of people. In the Biblical sense, we don’t GO to church; we ARE the church. Seeing this fresh vision of God’s people will change the way that we view and participate in our communities of faith.
