I have been in non-denominational congregations for most of my life and in those assemblies, 1 Peter 2:9 was often used to say that those who are “SAVED” now take “THE PLACE” of those, the royal priesthood, who YHWH ordained in the Torah.
Read 1 Peter 2:9 in context:
4 As you come to him, the living stone, rejected by people but chosen by God and precious to him,
5 you yourselves, as living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be cohanim set apart for God to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to him through Yeshua the Messiah.
6 This is why the Tanakh says, “Look! I am laying in Tziyon a stone, a chosen and precious cornerstone; and whoever rests his trust on it will certainly not be humiliated.”
7 Now to you who keep trusting, he is precious. But to those who are not trusting, “The very stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone”;
8 also he is a stone that will make people stumble, a rock over which they will trip. They are stumbling at the Word, disobeying it – as had been planned.
