Sheep Suffering (1 Peter 2)

Sojourn, Week 2

"Worship your Shepherd by suffering for what is right."

I. God’s flock is built on Christ for worship (2:4-10)

A. Built as a temple (vv 4-8)
B. Built as a priesthood (vv 8-10)

II. God’s flock is freed from sin for righteousness (2:11-25)

A. Walking honorably (vv 11-12)
B. In submission to governing authorities (vv 13-17)
C. Suffering following Christ’s example (vv 18-25)

So what?

  • Be built together with other believers to offer spiritual sacrifices (we’re all priests)
  • Do not be surprised when people talk poorly about you
  • Keep your living hope for a imperishable inheritance to live in a way that will silence mockers
  • Trust God’s ultimate authority and submit to those invested with some of it temporarily
