Sunday Connect Lesson for March 12, 2023

Peter likely wrote this letter to Christians scattered throughout Asia Minor around AD 62-63.

Study the Word: God's people are precious to Him. They are called to grow in Him and glorify Him.

Key Truth: Believers grow spiritually through a healthy diet of God's Word (1 Peter 2:1-3).  We depend on God's Word for life and health and strength. Let's avoid spiritual anorexia!

Key Truth: Believers are God's holy people who worship and serve Him (1 Peter 2:4-10).  We have been chosen by God, set apart as His special possession, named as priests who can freely approach Him with our requests. He has claim to our lives.

Key Truth: Believers conduct themselves honorably among unbelievers (1 Peter 2:11-17).  In all our relationships - as neighbors and citizens and employees and friends - we should represent our Lord.

Family Connection: Continue the discussion after church! Why is reading God’s Word so important for every believer?  What does it mean to pursue holiness? (Actively seeking a life that is different from the worlds standards.) Who is our example for how to live a holy life?
