Read 1 Peter 1:13-2:3

Orienting truths that shape our identity:

  • Him

  • History

  • Hope

  • Holy

    • Our identity in the world should reflect our relationship in God.
    • We are made holy because of the one who is holy.
    • Common things in the Bible become holy because God makes use of them.

We are holy because of his identity:

  • 1:13-2:3 We have been reborn as HIS CHILDREN
  • 2:4-12 We are holy because we are HIS TEMPLE

Two Families in 1:13-2:3

  • As obedient children (1:14)
  • Futile ways inherited from your forefathers (1:18)
  • You have been born again…grow up into salvation (1:23 & 2:2)
