“Living the Priesthood”


1 Peter 2:1 Therefore, putting aside all malice and all deceit and hypocrisy and envy and all slander, 2 like newborn babies, long for the pure milk of the word, so that by it you may grow in respect to salvation, 3 if you have tasted the kindness of the Lord. 4 And coming to Him as to a living stone which has been rejected by men, but is choice and precious in the sight of God, 5 you also, as living stones, are being built up as a spiritual house for a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 6 For this is contained in Scripture: "BEHOLD, I LAY IN ZION A CHOICE STONE, A PRECIOUS CORNER stone, AND HE WHO BELIEVES IN HIM WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED." 7 This precious value, then, is for you who believe; but for those who disbelieve, "THE STONE WHICH THE BUILDERS REJECTED, THIS BECAME THE VERY CORNER stone," 8 and, "A STONE OF STUMBLING AND A ROCK OF OFFENSE"; for they stumble because they are disobedient to the word, and to this doom they were also appointed. 9 But you are A CHOSEN RACE, A royal PRIESTHOOD, A HOLY NATION, A PEOPLE FOR God's OWN POSSESSION, so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; 10 for you once were NOT A PEOPLE, but now you are THE PEOPLE OF GOD; you had NOT RECEIVED MERCY, but now you have RECEIVED MERCY.

"Forgiveness"

Forgiveness is holy forgiveness is true

For when you forgive it cleanses you

To err it is human to forgive is divine

And a heart that forgives is clearly a sign

A sign that you’ve been to the cross and you’ve seen

Through the Lord’s eyes and what He did mean

When He said forgive them they know not what they do

Their minds are deceived and they have not a clue

Forgiven by God means I’m justified

As if I’d never stolen or hated or lied

It means I’ve been pardoned my sins are washed clean

No better than you if you know what I mean

And since I’m forgiven I must learn to forgive

For that is the Spirit in which we must live

To walk in His presence and dwell in His grace

To have only love for every last face

Forgiveness is also to give ourselves too

Don’t beat yourself up for the things that you do

Forgive and forget move on and keep going

In the garden of God we forgive to keep growing

Remember my friends that truly to live

As we’ve been forgiven we must learn to forgive

(Matthew 6:14,15)
