Offer Spiritual Sacrifice - 1 Peter 2

1 Peter 2:1 Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and  hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings

1 Peter 2:2 As  newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye  may grow thereby: 

1 Peter 2:3 If so be ye have tasted that the  Lord is gracious. 

1 Peter 2:4 To whom coming, as unto a  living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God,  and precious, 

1 Peter 2:5 Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a  spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual  sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. 

1 Peter 2:6  Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay  in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that  believeth on him shall not be confounded. 

1 Peter 2:7 Unto you  therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them  which be disobedient, the stone which the builders  disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner, 

1 Peter 2:8  And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to  them which stumble at the word, being disobedient:  whereunto also they were appointed. 

1 Peter 2:9 But ye are a  chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a  peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him  who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous  light: 

1 Peter 2:10 Which in time past were not a people, but  are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy,  but now have obtained mercy.   

1 Peter 2:11 Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and  pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the  soul; 

1 Peter 2:12 Having your conversation honest among the  Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers,  they may by your good works, which they shall behold,  glorify God in the day of visitation.  

1 Peter 2:13 Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for  the Lord’s sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme;  

1 Peter 2:14 Or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him  for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them  that do well. 

1 Peter 2:15 For so is the will of God, that with well  doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men:  

1 Peter 2:16 As free, and not using your liberty for a cloke of  maliciousness, but as the servants of God. 

1 Peter 2:17 Honour  all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the  king. 

1 Peter 2:18 Servants, be subject to your masters with  all fear; not only to the good and gentle, but also to the  froward. 

1 Peter 2:19 For this is thankworthy, if a man for  conscience toward God endure grief, suffering wrongfully.  

1 Peter 2:20 For what glory is it, if, when ye be buffeted for  your faults, ye shall take it patiently? but if, when ye do  well, and suffer for it, ye take it patiently, this is  acceptable with God. 

1 Peter 2:21 For even hereunto were ye  called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an  example, that ye should follow his steps: 

1 Peter 2:22 Who did  no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth: 

1 Peter 2:23 Who,  when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered,  he threatened not; but committed himself to him that  judgeth righteously: 

1 Peter 2:24 Who his own self bare our sins  in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins,  should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were  healed. 

1 Peter 2:25 For ye were as sheep going astray; but are  now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.  KJV
