“Not Home Yet: Sojourners and A Sovereign God”
1 Peter 2:4-12
As You Come to Him . . .
When you taste the goodness of God by drinking deeply from His word, He is transforming you by His power to be a temple of His presence. (v.4-5)
Cornerstone Or Stumbling Block . . .
Your spiritual formation is only as sure as your spiritual foundation.
“They stumble because they disobey the word as they were destined to do.”
As the elect exiles in this world, our hope rests in the truth that God sovereignly reigns over all, even those who oppose Him.
Make Much of Christ . . .
By God’s mercy and grace we have been chosen so that we might proclaim the goodness of God in Christ. (v.9-10)
As a sojourner, live in such a way that the world’s accusations about you fall short of the Christ-like character and conduct seen clearly at work in and through you. (v.11-12)
