1 Peter 1:24 - 2:10 - Jesus Christ: The Chief Corner Stone
In chapter one, Peter describes Jesus as our living hope. Here, in chapter two, he describes our Lord as a living stone who has become the chief cornerstone. Though Jesus was rejected by men, He is chosen and precious to God. To those of us who believe, Jesus is precious, but to those who are disobedient and unbelieving, He is a stone of stumbling and a rock of offense. We too, who are believers in Christ Jesus, are rejected by the world, but we are chosen and precious to God.
