This is a shame they will not experience from God, but there will be a shame experienced by those who do not believe. I would like to compare these two types of shame. Interesting that when we believe in Christ v. 7, we see His value. Summary The exiled believers, as those of us who believe in Christ today are also, share in Christ's characteristic of being a stone, and of Christ being a priest to offer pleasing sacrifices. They share Christ's rejection by men and acceptance by God. They also see the value of Jesus Christ. God/Christ (Blue highlight and rectangle) Observations Jesus is the living stone v. 4 Jesus is rejected by men (i.e. unbelievers) v.4 Jesus is chosen and precious to God v.4 God accepts and is pleased by sacrifices from believers v. 5 The giving and accepting of sacrifices is done through Christ v. 5 God lays a chosen and precious stone in Zion v. 6, cross ref Isaiah 28:16 The Isaiah 28:16 cross reference uses the same phrase chosen and precious as Peter does in v.4 Christ, this living cornerstone, whenever someone believes in Him, will never be put to shame v. 6 But those who do not believe Him they will stumble, trip over Him v.7-8 God destines those who do not believe to disobey v. 8 Thoughts/Questions God destines those who do not believe to disobey v.8, as He chooses those who would be the elect exiles 1:1 Living stone is an odd metaphor, for stone is not living. I would like to explore this term more. Summary Christ is the chosen, precious Living Cornerstone Stone to God which on the one hand is rejected by unbelievers, who would stumble and trip over Him, and who are chosen to disobey Him by unbelief. On the other hand, to those who do believe, they can offer sacrifices which are pleasing to God through Him, and they will never be put to shame, nor rejected by God. Unbelievers (Brown highlight and rectangle) Observations Reject Jesus v.4 Do not believe Jesus v. 7 They stumble and trip over Jesus v. 8 They disobey God v.8 They were destined to disobey v.8 Thoughts/Questions It is not an easy thing to understand how God's sovereignty and man's responsibility come together. Yet they do. For more discussion, see the google doc reference above. There is an interaction between disobedience and belief. I would like to understand this further. Summary Unbelievers reject and do not believe in Jesus. So they will stumble and trip over Him, they disobey God as they were chosen by God to do so. Other Cross References Psalm 118:22 Isaiah 8:14 Takeaway This passage is stark and terrifying to me, leading me to pray that God strengthens my faith and accepts me. I am drawn to lean on Him even more. I also pray and work towards knowing this honour that is to be had in Christ and to desire and value this. At the same time to also know the dishonour, the shame that is to be given without Christ, and to fear this. There is an interesting parallel: to believe in Jesus is to be spared from shame by God but to experience shame by unbelievers, or the world. To not believe in Jesus is to receive shame from God but to have honour by unbelievers or the world. There is no escaping from shame, it's just which shame I want to avoid. I have to choose to receive one shame or the other. I would like to consider these two options and let the weight of the choice sink deep into my very being. God, have mercy on me, and may it be that You have destined me for obedience.
