Passage: 1st Peter 2:4-8
Service Type:

Scripture: 1 Peter 2:4-8
Pastor Gary Glover

This is God’s architecture to handle the difficulties of life:

  • The foundation stone of life!
  • The spiritual house!
  • The precious asset!


  1. Did the Holy Spirit speak to you about anything today?
  2. Consider three passages of scripture that are quoted in this section:  Psalm 118:22-23, Isaiah 8:14-15, Isaiah 28:16.  How do these scriptures inform what Peter is saying?
  3. What are the implications of a cornerstone?  How can you really tell what the cornerstone of your life is?  What keeps you focused when pressure and demands build up in your life?
  4. What three things are stated about Jesus as a living stone in verse 4? What do they mean? Why do you think Peter chose a paradox (living/stones) to describe Jesus?
  5. What two metaphors are used to describe Christians in verse 5? How are we living stones? What implications can we draw? (cf. 1 Corinthians 3:6-9; Philippians 1:3-5)
  6. What does it mean that we are a “holy priesthood?” In what way are we priests? For what two purposes does a priest exist (see verse 5) ? What sacrifices can we offer that are pleasing to God?
  7. What is Jesus to those who believe in Him? To those who do not believe? (6-8) Why?
