• Living Stones in a Spiritual House Media Resource by

    1 Peter 2:1-10

    The Bible makes it clear that the church of Jesus Christ is the redeemed people whom Jesus died to save. Yet the Bible uses various metaphors to describe them; such as a flock of sheep, the body of Christ, and Peter’s designation of a spiritual house. So if the church is a spiritual house, what does that make the individual members? Considering this in this message, Dr. Sproul teaches us about the foundation and Cornerstone of this spiritual house and where we belong in it. View Resource

  • A Transformed Nation Media Resource by

    1 Peter 2:9-11

    You may have heard it said that Christians are to be in the world, but not of the world. This is rooted in the High Priestly prayer of Jesus in John’s gospel. In that prayer, Jesus does not ask for the removal of His people from the world, but rather that they be protected from the evil one, and that the Father would sanctify them in truth. So how do we live in the tension between two worlds? Beginning this series on the City of God, Dr. Sproul teaches us how to understand our citizenship in “A Transformed Nation.” View Resource

  • Living Under Authority Media Resource by

    1 Peter 2:11-17

    God in His grace has chosen to create a people to submit to His authority. But the New Testament tells us that we must also submit to the authority of earthly rulers. For whose sake do we obey them? Is there ever a time when we may disobey civil authorities? Dr. Sproul examines this issue in this message as he teaches us the importance of obeying the earthly authorities God has placed over us. View Resource

  • The Overseer Media Resource by

    1 Peter 2:18-25

    How do you suffer? The question is not ‘do you suffer’ or ‘what are you suffering from,’ but how do you suffer? Everyone suffers, but how we do it makes all the difference in the world. To understand that difference is to know the One who has suffered more than any. Teaching from First Peter chapter four, Dr. Sproul reminds us of our great Shepherd who watches over His flock in this message entitled “The Overseer.” View Resource

  • A Life of Submission Media Resource by

    1 Peter 2:18-3:17

    Because of sin, we want to be autonomous, masters of our own destiny. But we know that there are authority structures in place over us, so we submit. What if those in authority over you are causing you undue hardship and suffering? How far should you submit? How does this apply to wives and husbands or the civil magistrates and citizens? In this message entitled “A Life of Submission,” Dr. Sproul teaches us, by way of our ultimate example, what submission means and how we can follow it. View Resource

    1 Peter 2:25

    Although barely mentioned in the New Testament, the title used by Peter to refer to Jesus as the “Bishop of our Souls,” is deeply rooted in the pages of Scripture. This name of God the Son is mentioned broadly even in the infancy narratives of the New Testament. View Resource
