Stand Firm with God’s Church

The elect of God are His church building program, serving as both temple and priesthood. To emphasize this, Peter quotes three great “stone” passages from the OT, Isaiah 28, Psalm 118, and Isaiah 8. Looking at these texts, we see behavioral application for how to offer spiritual sacrifices through Jesus. Is 28:15-18, 22 gives the first application: take God’s judgment of non-believers seriously! Ps 118:22-24 gives the second application point: rejoice each day! Is 8:12-20 holds the third application: do not fear what this world fears, turn to God and His Word instead!
