1 Peter 2:4-5 NIV
 As you come to him, the living Stone—rejected by humans but chosen by God and precious to him—  you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
1 Peter 2:9-10 NIV
 But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.  Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.
The resurrection of Jesus has had a greater impact on the world than any other event in history. It has transformed millions of lives, societies and nations. Today it still transforms individuals and builds them into a spiritual house – a place where Jesus is King and reigns in love
Hallelujah – he is risen!
