And coming to Him as to a living stone which has been rejected by men, but is choice and precious in the sight of God, (1 Peter 2:4)

you also, as living stones, are being built up as a spiritual house for a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. (1 Peter 2:5)
