“Come to Him then, to that Living Stone which men tried and threw away but which is chosen and precious in Gods sight. Come and like Living Stones, be yourselves built into a spiritual house for a holy, dedicated, consecrated priesthood; to offer up those spiritual sacrifices that are acceptable and pleasing to God through Jesus Christ.”
