1 Peter 2

12/01/2020
In 1 Peter 2, Peter tells the new believers in the various Roman provinces that Jesus Christ is the Living Stone; the promised Messiah prophesied by numerous people in the Old Testament (or Covenant). He goes on to teach and explain that born-again believers are a chosen people, living stones being built into a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices to God through Jesus Christ. Peter then urges those believers to live godly lives in a pagan society. That was two thousand years ago. Has anything changed or if we really are a holy priesthood, what does that mean for us living here and now? Questions for Lifegroup: 1. How can we rid ourselves of all kinds of sin and crave spiritual milk instead? 2. If we truly believe the Word of God, that we are a holy priesthood, how can we become who we already are? 3. Discuss ways that we can live godly lives in a nominally Christian society.
Love saves. But what does it save from? This is at the heart of what love is. Love rescues us from being subject to what we actually deserve. Love heals us from our sins which kills and destroys and instead gives us a forever life with God. Real love doesn’t tolerate that which destroys. Rather real love radically deals with the problem and completely overcomes it. Questions for Lifegroup: 1. What sinful areas in your life (thoughts, words, actions or inactions) need overcoming by the love of God? 2. How might we become more aware of God’s purifying, saving love? 3. Pray to be filled with the Holy Spirit to enable you to live Jesus’ way?
