1 Peter 2.9-10
Questions to Consider
- How do the privileges mentioned in these verses make us a special and unique people?
- How does our identity and privileges as believers trump any other worldly identity? How are our identity and privileges as believers better than any other worldly identity?
- Why is it easy to make an idol out of our American values?
- When we idolize our American values and then lose our joy when they are removed, what does that tell our world about the God we serve?
- How can we look at our nation as not our home and idolize it, and instead look at it as our mission field and evangelize it?
- When you mourn and grieve for the direction of our country, are you mourning and grieving for yourself that your way of life is being removed, or for a nation that is headed to destruction? How can you tell?
Action Steps For The Week
- Pray for our nation, for God to redeem those we would deem as enemies of the gospel.
- Worship God this week for the privileges you have as a believer. Spend some time thinking about why your spiritual identity is better than your earthly identity.
