1 Peter 2:1-12 ESV  
REVIEW:
    • SO… Because of Christ – We must put away all types of evil
    • Christ is the world’s trash, but God’s precious corner stone
    • The thrown away lottery ticket
TODAY:
1. Who are you?  
2. What is your purpose?  
3. What is your response?
 
————————— Start with verse 5—————————
(5)  you yourselves like living stones are being built up as a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
 
    • Jesus is the corner stone
    • Who are we? Living stones – as a spiritual house
    • What is our purpose?  To offer
    • Who is the builder?
 
Hebrews 11:8-10 NASB  
    • God is the builder and the architect
    • God is the potter and we are the clay
        • He draws up the plans
        • He selects the stones
            • From one lump of clay, honor and dishonor
            • From one rock quarry
                • Stones REJECTED by man
        • God hue’s the stones (cuts and shapes them)
        • He places and sets the stones
 
Exodus 20:25 NASB  
    • The work of man can ONLY profane the Holy
        • Word & the Spirit – shape us & make us alive!
            • God uses circumstances
                • Preachers (but they only bring the Word)
                • Blessings & sufferings
                    • God’s sovereignty
 
    • So… What part do we play?  
        • WE ARE the stones in his hands
            • These STONES have a PURPOSE!
    • We make up a holy priesthood
        • We give Him glory, praise and honor
            • Spiritual sacrifices
    • Through Jesus Christ
        • Without Christ, everything is unclean (sinful)
    • Builders rejected Christ:
 
1 Peter 2:8-9 ESV  
 
Mr. Drury – Sentence structure – VERY IMPORTANT
 
CONJUNCTION:  BUT!!! A conjunction used to introduce a contrasting view
 
    • They stumble but… YOU!
 
SUBJECT:  YOU
 
1 Peter 2:9 ESV  
1. Who are you?  (Incoherent weird lyrics)
2. What is your purpose?
 
You are 4 things, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him
 
    • 4 terms used in the OT to describe Israel –
        • Israel is God’s chosen people
        • The church is God’s chosen people
        • The church is a combination of Jew and Gentile
        • The New Testament is NOT a new religion BUT the fulfilment of the OT
 
PICTURE
    • This is not a new plan
        • This fulfils the promise given to the serpent
        • Genesis 3:15 ESV  …he shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel.”
    • This fulfills the promises to Abraham, Moses, David…
        • The covenant of GRACE
 
Matthew 26:28 ESV  
 
The church is made up of Jews and Gentiles, THEY BECOME…
 
A CHOSEN RACE
 
The word “chosen” means elected
The word “race” means – From a common line
 
Exodus 19:5-6 ESV  
 
    • But you are a chosen race
    • Because Christ did
 
    • Races tend to gather together
        • Towns and sections
    • Do you desire to be with your race?
        • What race do you belong to?
            • Do you desire God’s people or the world?
 
A ROYAL PRIESTHOOD
 
Revelation 1:5-6 ESV  
 
    • Only priests can enter in with God
 
Hebrews 4:16 ESV  
 
Hebrews 10:19 ESV  
 
HOLY NATION
 
Exodus 19:6  and you shall be to me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.
 
    • You are pilgrims & foreigners in the world (1Pe 1:1)
    • (11)  Beloved, I urge you as sojourners and exiles to abstain from the passions of the flesh,
    • However to God, A nation set apart, His church
 
A PEOPLE FOR HIS OWN POSSESSION
 
Exodus 19:5 NKJV  
 
    • If… you shall be vs. you are
 
Titus 2:14 NKJV  
Revelation 5:9-10 NKJV  
 
    • We are taken out of darkness into light, for a REASON
    • We have a purpose!
    • To proclaim the excellencies of him
