Christian Identity

Text: 1 Peter 2:4-10
Speaker: Ryan Wentzel

Who are you?  The answer seems obvious at first glance.  But what is it that really defines you?  Is it your race?  Is it success or material wealth?  Is your identity wrapped up in what other people think about you?

As a Christian, your identity is shaped by who Christ is, what he has done for you, and by the new community in which he has placed you.  In 1 Peter 2:4–10, Peter helps believers understand who they are in Christ in order to prepare them to live lives that are pleasing to God in the midst of an unbelieving world.

In preparation for listening to this sermon, please read Ephesians 2:11–22 and Exodus 19:1–6.
