1 Peter: Thriving In Exile
1 Peter: Thriving In Exile
Living Stones and a Spiritual House (1 Peter 2:1-10)

Sermon Outline:

  1. Our individual responsibility (1 Peter 2:1-3).
  2. Our corporate identity (1 Peter 2:4-6).
  3. A universal reality (1 Peter 2:7-8).
  4. An overwhelming beauty (1 Peter 2:9-10).

Discussion Questions:

  • What are the things that narrow your gaze or focus? What desires/hopes cloud your mind from seeing Jesus? How does hope in the Gospel broaden your gaze? Or, how is Jesus better? 
  • God’s kindness leads to repentance (not the reverse) and our salvation fuels our obedience (not the reverse). Why are we so tempted to switch the order of those statements? 
  • Finish the sentence: In my life, greater holiness looks like… (Hint: It looks more like Jesus!)

This is the 5th sermon of the series 1 Peter: Thriving In Exile.
