Questions for Study

In I Peter 2:4-10, what does Peter say priests’ work is?

What is the connection between Jesus Christ the Living Stone and Christians who are likened to living stones?  Hint:  1:3.  What entity is Peter talking about in vv. 4-5?

How do we know what spiritual sacrifices are acceptable to God through Jesus Christ?  Where do we find out?       E.g., Psalm 50:23; 51:17, etc.

What are some spiritual sacrifices we’re to offer up?

How are we to show forth God’s excellences in & through our lives as individual Christians and as Christ’s Church?

OT Priests served before the Lord in rotation.  Are NT Christians—priests—ever off duty?
