New Life

I just looooove how the Message version of the Bible puts this…

1 Peter 1:23 MSG
Your new life is not like your old life. Your old birth came from mortal sperm; your new birth comes from God’s living Word. Just think: a life conceived by God himself!

1 Peter 2:8-10, 15 MSG
For the untrusting it’s. . . a stone to trip over, a boulder blocking the way. They trip and fall because they refuse to obey, just as predicted. But you are the ones chosen by God, chosen for the high calling of priestly work, chosen to be a holy people, God’s instruments to do his work and speak out for him, to tell others of the night-and-day difference he made for you from nothing to something, from rejected to accepted. It is God’s will that by doing good, you might cure the ignorance of the fools who think you’re a danger to society.
