Rock Solid: 1st Peter Bible Study Day 4

An excerpt:

In today’s passage, Peter talks about people being “living stone,” solid yet moving. These living stones become a spiritual house, God’s own chosen people. These people are those who are rid “of all malice, all guile, insincerity, envy, and all slander.” He refers to people who don’t accept Christians as being like the builders that rejected a stone that became the cornerstone.

The living stones turn into stumbling blocks for them.The last part of today’s passage particularly stands out to me:

“But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s own people, in order that you may proclaim the mighty acts of him who called you out of the darkness into his marvelous light.” (1 Peter 2:9)

Ad Majorum Dei Gloriam: 1st Peter Day 2

Inspired by this prayer from St. Ignatius of Loyola.

Take, Lord, and receive all my liberty,

my memory, my understanding,

and my entire will,

All I have and call my own.

You have given all to me.

To you, Lord, I return it.

Everything is yours; do with it what you will.

Give me only your love and your grace,

that is enough for me.

May we all surrender ourselves to the Lord, dearest sisters in Christ!
