|1 Corinthians 1:10|
10 Now I beseech you, brothers, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak in harmony, and that there be no divisions among you; but that you are perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.
|1 Peter 2:1-5 |
1 Therefore laying aside all malice, all deceit, hypocrisies, envy, and all evil speaking,
2 Yearn like newborn babies for pure, spiritual milk so that you may grow up to salvation,1 [From the Word of the Lord within: "Salvation occurs when you are one with Christ and God. Listen to and obey my voice; listen to my sweet words of wisdom. If you pay attention and obey, it results in union with God. He joins with our cleansed nature. We must become like Him to merge with Him."]
3 If indeed you have tasted that the Lord is gracious.
4 Coming to him the Living Stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God, and precious,
5 You also, as living stones, are built up as a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
