30 August 2020 (am) – 1 Peter 2:11-3-12

1 Peter 2:4-10
Peter continues his letter addressing Christians as foreigners living in a world that isn’t their true home. This time he tells us those who trust in Jesus are God’s new temple, with a new identity and a message to proclaim.
There are plenty of connections between the Old Testament and the New Testament, and we’ll end up discussing why they matter for Christians today as we talk about the questions below.
Q What was the OT Temple for? Think of the different types of sacrifices and their functions in Leviticus, for example.
Q Where is God’s temple now? Read 1 Corinthians 3:16, Romans 8:9, and return to read 1 Peter 2:4-5
Q How can God possibly build his church when life is difficult for His people?
Q Chosen race, royal priesthood, holy nation? Doesn’t that mean I’m amazing?
Q What would others see in your life that proclaim Jesus and make him famous? Think about practical examples of what your spouse, close friends, children, neighbours, fellow Christians can see in your life that glorifies God.
