Peter describes believers in light of Christ, the cornerstone. He describes us as living stones being set next to the cornerstone, forming a Spiritual house, as well as a priesthood of believers. These truths speak to how each believer should be singularly (Christ-Centered) and dependently (Christ-Dependent) serving God. The context that service for God is principally is being transformed into his holy priesthood (1 Peter 2:5) and declaring the riches and mercies that are found in Christ (1 Peter 2:9). The building up that is found in God working through the scriptures to establish us as His Holy, Royal Priesthood, a temple set apart for him. (1 Peter 2:2)

David declares the greatness and vastness of God's knowledge and judgement in Psalm 11. We all have tendency to seek refuge in earthly places, but David declares he will seek refuge in God. Why? Because God see's and examines all of humanity. Therefore, he knows and executes judgement upon the wicked and the righteous. The wicked to condemnation and the righteous to blessing. Interresting is the declaration of the righteousness of God towards believers as David suffers. The implication is that suffering may be the blessing God gives the righteous.
