Not Our Home
Slaves (Part 2)
The Paradoxical Kingdom • November 26, 2017 • Kyle Talbott
The unjust suffering of God’s people when endured through a heart of fear and worship of God is divine, not human in origin. Therefore, the church's high calling is to follow her Lord wherever He may take her no matter the cost!
Set Apart (Part 3)
1 Peter 1:22-2:3 • September 17, 2017 • Michael McCracken
The pursuit of holiness will lead to true community. Study Questions: 1. What things stuck out to you from this text? Is there anything in this text that challenges you? 2. When was the last time someone proclaimed the truth of the gospel to you in order to combat a lie that you were believing and living from? If it has been a while why do you think this is so? 3. Do you love people or do you need people to love you?
Set Apart (Part 2)
1 Peter 1:14-21 • September 10, 2017 • Michael McCracken
Peter helps us see the practical context for holiness. As elect exiles we live holy (set apart) lives empowered by the gospel to display the glory of God’s grace to the world around us. Study Questions: 1. What things stuck out to you from this text? Is there anything in this text that challenges you? 2. What does holiness look like in your life right now? Would the world describe you as set a part? Why or why not? 3. Do you struggle to view God as Father…to believe the He loves you and is pleased by your presence? Is it possible that you are putting your faith and hope in your holy living rather than in God? How could the gospel change your view of God? 4. Read and meditate on 2 Corinthians 6:1-13. What would it look like for you to “not receive the grace of God in vain”?
