1 Peter 2:4–12

Peter has greeted believers in Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, Bithynia, and in a way, those of us here in this place. He said by following Christ, the Spirit has made us holy with an inheritance pure and undefiled. Peter acknowledges this life is fleeting and full of trials, but it is within our power, through the grace of God to grow into the people God wants us to be and it can be both satisfying and everlasting. In fact, in the following passage Peter describes the temple God is building with His people, including us, as the building material—living stones. Read Exodus 19:4-6. God sees His people in a role. What are we to be? How does the Exodus vision of God’s people stay consistent through this 1 Peter text? How might this change your vision of yourself and your brothers and sisters in Christ?
