Sermon Notes

1 Peter 2:4-8

October 7, 2018

Peter uses an architectural metaphor to describe Jesus Christ. In the building process, much effort would be taken to examine the stones to make sure that they were fit the construction of a building or house. If stones were weak, fractured, or inadequate, they were rejected, thrown away, and considered useless. During the time of Jesus, and ever since, many have looked and rejected Christ from their lives. Think back to His time on earth; the Pharisees, Sadducees, scribes, the Sanhedrin, and the High Priests all hated Him and wanted Him dead. This fact was a common point in Peter’s sermons.

You, as a Christian, are part of something much larger than yourself. Your Christianity is not meant to be kept private. If it is, you are missing out. You are part of a much larger structure with God as the architect. You are a priest, set apart by God, for God. Be aware that just as Jesus was the Chosen One of God, yet rejected by man, you too may experience the same rejection by this world. However, do not forget you are precious to God.
