Chosen To Be Set Apart • 1 Peter 1:22-2:3

  • Read 1 Peter 1:22-2:3. What stood out to you about this passage or the message on Sunday? What was your main point or takeaway?
  • How does lowering ourselves to being less important than those around us allow us to truly love our brothers and sisters?
  • Peter used two different Greek words for love in verse 22. Philadelphia (brotherly affection) and Agape (unconditional). Why do you think it’s important to distinguish between the two?
      • Why does Peter say to love “since you have been born again”?
      • Peter gives examples of what love doesn’t look like in 1 Peter 2:1. What are some words we might use to describe the new type of love he describes and how can we practice them?
  • What does spiritual death entail, and why is being born again such a necessity?
      • Why is it important that the seed we have been born again into is “imperishable”? 
  • In 1 Peter 2:2-3 it says to “taste that the Lord is good”? What does that mean? See Psalm 34:8, Psalm 119:101-104, Proverbs 24:14-15
      • Read see 1 Corinthians 3:1-3, Hebrews 5:12-14. What do you think “spiritual milk” is? Who needs it the most? 
      • How does tasting and seeing that Lord is good and spiritual milk work together to help us “grow up into salvation”?
      • Why is it important for a believer to move past being reliant on “spiritual milk”? 
      • What do you think this practically looks like in your life?
  • Parker shared on Sunday that the imperishable seed in us is meant to grow God’s imperishable fruit. Looking at Galatians 5:22-23, which of these fruits of the spirit are you struggling with most right now? Take some time to pray about this as a group.
