Worship and Witness (1 Peter 2:4-10) 14 May 2023

Worship and Witness 

1 Peter 2:4-10



Peter explains who Christians are, in OT language: 

  • A temporary temple and the temple that really matters 

  • A people belonging to God – a kingdom of priests and a holy nation




Who we are, in Christ, shapes our worship and our witness

Hope and Holiness (1 Peter 1:13-2:3)

Hope and Holiness

1 Peter 1:13-2:3


What is holiness and how do you be holy? 


Focus on Jesus (1:13-14)

.. as God’s people who fear our Father in heaven  (1:15-17)


.. and who trust God through the work of Jesus (1:18-21)


Let God’s powerful word keep transforming your heart (1:22-2:1)


.. and keep being thirsty to grow (2:2-3)


For Christians being holy is being who we are in Christ!
