The Living Stone

A stone that lives! That is Jesus Christ. After Peter referred to the tastefulness of the Lord, the apostle then said, “Coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God and precious…” (1 Peter 2:4).
As a living stone, Jesus went to the Father. Men rejected Jesus, but the Father accepted Him, because He was precious.
Did those men realize who they rejected? What horror for them when they died and learned the truth! Can you think of a greater shock?
Oh friends, be sure to accept Jesus, His ways, His teachings, and His commands for as long as you live, because the Father accepts Jesus completely, and so should we. The Father chose Jesus because He was precious. Let Jesus always be precious to you.
