Peter describes believers in light of Christ, the cornerstone. He describes us as living stones being set next to the cornerstone, forming a Spiritual house, as well as a priesthood of believers. These truths speak to how each believer should be singularly (Christ-Centered) and dependently (Christ-Dependent) serving God. The context that service for God is principally is being transformed into his holy priesthood (1 Peter 2:5) and declaring the riches and mercies that are found in Christ (1 Peter 2:9). The building up that is found in God working through the scriptures to establish us as His Holy, Royal Priesthood, a temple set apart for him. (1 Peter 2:2)
In this sermon we consider what it means for Christians to be built up into God’s new & living temple. Does it refer to the church being God’s new creation in Christ? Does it refer to the person & work of Jesus being our access into God’s presence? Does it refer to true believers becoming the very dwelling place of God? Does it refer to the way we worship God under the new covenant? Does it refer to a promise of a glorious final temple? The answer according to 1 Peter is all of the above & more!
