1 Peter 2:1-12 ESV  
    • SO… Because of Christ – We must put away all types of evil
    • Christ is the world’s trash, but God’s precious corner stone
    • The thrown away lottery ticket
1. Who are you?  
2. What is your purpose?  
3. What is your response?
————————— Start with verse 5—————————
(5)  you yourselves like living stones are being built up as a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
    • Jesus is the corner stone
    • Who are we? Living stones – as a spiritual house
    • What is our purpose?  To offer
    • Who is the builder?
Hebrews 11:8-10 NASB  
    • God is the builder and the architect
    • God is the potter and we are the clay
        • He draws up the plans
        • He selects the stones
            • From one lump of clay, honor and dishonor
            • From one rock quarry
                • Stones REJECTED by man
        • God hue’s the stones (cuts and shapes them)
        • He places and sets the stones

                • Preachers (but they only bring the Word)
                • Blessings & sufferings
                    • God’s sovereignty
    • So… What part do we play?  
        • WE ARE the stones in his hands
            • These STONES have a PURPOSE!
    • We make up a holy priesthood
        • We give Him glory, praise and honor
            • Spiritual sacrifices
    • Through Jesus Christ
        • Without Christ, everything is unclean (sinful)
    • Builders rejected Christ:
