God’s House and God’s People

Peter wrote his first letter to churches throughout Asia Minor that were suffering for simply being Christians. He wrote to encourage them in who they are as “elect exiles” (1:3) and how they ought to live (2:11–12). In 1 Peter 2:2–4, he reminds them of who they are as local churches. Something miraculous happens when we’re born again through the preaching of God’s word (1:22–2:1) and come to Christ to mature as Christians (2:2–3). He forms us as his spiritual house with the resurrected Christ as the cornerstone (2:4–8) and chooses us as his true people (2:9–10).
