Have You Ever Seen A Living Stone?

Have You Ever Seen  A Living Stone?  
Sermon for the Fifth Sunday of Easter

SermonThe Text:  1 Peter 2:4-10
  4 As you come to him, the living Stone–rejected by men but chosen by God and precious to him–
5 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.
6 For in Scripture it says:
  “See, I lay a stone in Zion, a chosen and precious cornerstone, and the one who trusts in him  will never be put to shame.”

        7 Now to you who believe, this stone is precious. But to those who do not believe,  “The stone the builders rejected has become the capstone, “
8 and, “A stone that causes men to stumble and a rock that makes them fall.”  They stumble because they disobey the message–which is also what they were destined for.

    9 But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.
10 Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.
