1 Peter 2 Summary

Let's Get Stoned

  • Peter has plenty more to say: if you're on God's team, act like it. Don't be hateful or bitter or insecure or envious or a liar.
  • Act the newborn Christian you are. Drink nothing but spiritual milk and you'll grow up big and strong and holy.
  • Or be like a stone.
  • Again, stay with us here.
  • There are some stones that folks didn't think were good enough for building houses. Jesus was one of those. Believers are the others.
  • But these rejected stones will be used to build up a spiritual house, says Peter
  • Again, Peter quotes Isaiah's thoughts on stones. He tells us that the stone that everyone hated will become the cornerstone—the most important piece in the whole building. Take that, inept builders.
  • That same stone will trip up those haters and make them fall. Fall into sin, that is. They've turned their backs on God and they'll get their comeuppance one day.
  • But believers are super special. They're God's new people. And he's gonna be merciful with them. Other folks? Not so much.

Be Good

  • Okay, so if you're a believer in Jesus, how should you be acting?
  • Well, first of all, don't sin. Also, you should try to behave yourself when you're dealing with non-believers. They may think Christians are a little wacky, but if everyone keeps their behavior on the up and up, it could change their mind. Hey, it's worth a shot.
  • Also, don't go around challenging authority figures on purpose. Be respectful to the emperor and his governors. Peter doesn't want anyone thinking Christians are anti-social anarchists. Honor everyone you meet.
