And coming to Him as to a living stone which has been rejected by men, but His choice and precious in the sight of God you also, as living stones, are being built up as a spiritual house for a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.   – 1 Peter 2:4-5 NASB
