Anointing the Priests, Pastor Rob, Sunday, Feb. 7, 2021

“Anointing the Priests,” is the title of Pastor Rob’s message, Sunday, Feb. 7. Prepare for Sunday worship by reading and studying 1 Peter 2:4-10 NRSV, shown below.

1 Peter 2:4-10  New Revised Standard Version

4 Come to him, a living stone, though rejected by mortals yet chosen and precious in God’s sight, and 5 like living stones, let yourselves be builta]”>[a]into a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 6 For it stands in scripture:
“See, I am laying in Zion a stone,
a cornerstone chosen and precious;
and whoever believes in himb]”>[b] will not be put to shame.”
7 To you then who believe, he is precious; but for those who do not believe,

“The stone that the builders rejected
has become the very head of the corner,”
8 and   “A stone that makes them stumble,  and a rock that makes them fall.”

They stumble because they disobey the word, as they were destined to do.

9 But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s own people,c]”>[c] in order that you may proclaim the mighty acts of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.

10 Once you were not a people,
but now you are God’s people;
once you had not received mercy,
but now you have received mercy.
