CALL TO WORSHIP
“‘the stone you builders rejected,
which has become the cornerstone.’
Salvation is found in no one else,
for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind
by which we must be saved.”
1 Peter 2:4-6
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.
For in Scripture it says:
“See, I lay a stone in Zion,
a chosen and precious cornerstone,
and the one who trusts in him
will never be put to shame.”
The stone the builders rejected
has become the cornerstone;
the Lord has done this,
and it is marvelous in our eyes.
The Lord has done it this very day;
let us rejoice today and be glad.
