Fifth Sunday in Lent

March 18, 2018

1 Peter 2:4-12

Here lies ______, whose trust was in ______.

"On Christ the solid Rock I stand.  All other ground is sinking sand."

  • You are a chosen person, part of a chosen people.
  • You are a priest, part of a royal priesthood.
  • You are a holy citizen, part of a holy nation.
  • You are a person belonging to God, part of a people who belong to God.

Realize then, that we are different - aliens, strangers in this world.

Refrain from what would do war against your soul.

Live a life that brings glory to Christ so others might be drawn to Him.

Know who you are.  Stop letting the world tell you who you are.  You are a child of God.  Your are a saint.  You are secure.  You are holy.  You have royal blood flowing through your veins.

A lot of us Christians don't act as we should because we don't remember who (or Whose) we are.
