Us Peters; Priests; & sacrificers
1. This scripture says that we are stones (rocks) that God is using to build his spiritual temple. In Matthew 16:18, Jesus basically says this same thing to Peter. Peter has now realized that it did not apply only to him, but to all who received the revelation that Jesus is the Christ, Son of the living God. When we understand this and operate our lives from this understanding, we become the stones (Peter->Petros->Stone->Boulder) on which the God builds his temple.
2. We're called holy priests! I don't have much revelation on this, now. But I thought that I'd highlight it in order to come back and study/meditate on it more later.
3. I've always been interested in understanding our New Testament sacrificial obligations. Here is another clear instruction of how to offer sacrifices that please God -- the meditation of Jesus Christ.
