Discussion Questions

Review and discuss this week’s Core Truth with your group:


Core Truth #18

Q: Will God allow our disobedience and idolatry to go unpunished?

A: No, every sin is against the sovereignty, holiness, and goodness of God, and against his righteous law, and God is righteously angry with our sins and will punish them in his just judgment both in this life, and in the life to come.


Read 1 Peter 2:4-5 out loud as a group.

How did you come to trust in Jesus Christ?

What does it look like for you to be continually coming to him in your daily life? Why is that important?

What does it mean that Jesus is a living stone? Why is that significant?

In what way and for what reasons was Jesus rejected by men? In today’s politically charged environment, do you think that Jesus would be welcome in most churches? Why or why not?

What does it mean to be “a spiritual house” and “holy priesthood”? What is the significance of those roles for God’s people/his church?

What are spiritual sacrifices? Are these a duty or a privilege for believers? Explain.
