Chosen for His Purpose (1 Peter 2: 9-12)
Who we’ve been called to Be. (Part 1) - 1 Peter 2:9-10
What we’ve been called to Do. (Part 2) - 1 Peter 2:11-12
11 Beloved, I urge you as sojourners and exiles to abstain from the passions of the flesh, which wage war against your soul.
12 Keep your conduct among the Gentiles honorable so that when they speak against you as evildoers, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day of visitation.
Listen to the sermon and use the questions to guide your discussions and prayers.
