                            “Why Church?”
 

1 Peter 2:9-10                                 Nov. 10, 2013

“May you be blessed by the Word…
 
I. We are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation. (v. 9-10) 

               A. Peter identifies believers with the Israelites in Ex. 19:5-6.

            B. Actions are to flow from your identity as a people (Hosea 2).

                    how to worship well.

 

II. We have been called out of darkness into light (v. 9b)

               A. Darkness is a maze.

               B. The light makes the world clear.

 

Conclusion           

               What is the purpose of the Church?
               1. Be a proclaiming priest.

            2. Live in the light.
