INTRODUCTION
Week 4 of 1st Peter, “Anchored in Hope”: Chapter 2:4-12.  Peter encourages the believers by reminding them WHO they are (a spiritual house, holy priesthood, a chosen race, etc)… and WHAT they are there for (to “proclaim the excellencies of him”).
Key Passages: 1 Peter 2:4-12; Rom 12:1; Heb 13:15; _______________________
   Other: _______________________________________________________________

QUESTIONS

  1. Ask if someone can give the primary sermon points to refresh the message (be prepared to do this yourself if needed).
  2. Re-read 1 Peter 2:4-12. What are the descriptions given in this passage of believers, of WHO we are? (a spiritual house, holy priesthood, a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession)
    1. Which one stands out to you… and why?  Are these singular or plural descriptors? (plural; we are described in the sense of community, not as individuals) What does this encourage?
  3. In v5 we are told to “offer spiritual sacrifices”. Read Rom 12:1 and Heb 13:15, what does it mean to offer our lives as living sacrifices?
  4. Complete this phrase, v9 says we are “a people ___ his own possession”? (“for”)  What significance is there in us being “a people FOR his own possession”?
  5. This leads to the WHY or the purpose for us being “his own possession”; what is this? (“to proclaim the excellencies of him”)
  6. What are some examples of ways we can “proclaim the excellencies of him”?
  7. Ask if there are any other personal observations or takeaways from the scripture or sermon.

PRAYER FOCUS
Pray for the biblical community that is The Mount church; for us to truly “reflect” Christ to the Greater Keller area and that we would “proclaim the excellencies of him”.
