Series: Wait Here: When God's expectations do battle with ours
Speaker: Ben Taylor
Key Verse(s): 1 Peter 2:9
Discuss a time when you were chosen or selected to something (a team, group, award) that made you feel special.
Respond: To choose Jesus is wonderful. To be chosen by Jesus is even better.
Respond: If we are a Christian, Jesus chose us before we were ever born. This love and commitment is unshakeable. It is able to withstand our greatest fears, doubts, and suffering.
Jesus set his love on us before we ever loved him back. Our choosing him comes second. Why is that order so important?
Read 1 Peter 2:4-10. Respond: Jesus has saved us from sin and for his glory, not so we can live however we want. Our surrender to him begins with salvation, and should continue throughout our lives.
Gospel: Read and reflect on 1 Peter 2:21-24.
