Word Studies for the Week of May 14th, 2017

May 14 ● Easter 5 How to Survive: Trust God ● 1 Peter 2: 11-12, 19-25 Luther states that the Christian must “act like a stranger in an inn who does not have his possessions there but only takes food and gives his money for it. For here there is only a stopover where we cannot remain. We must proceed on our journey. We are citizens in heaven; on earth we are pilgrims and guests.”   How does this metaphor work for you?   Is it hopeful or scary? Why does Peter say we should guard our conduct in verse 2:12?   How might the concept of being a good guest ...

May 7 ● Easter 4 How to Survive: Proclaim Christ ● 1 Peter 2: 1-10 Is it easier to listen to someone about deep and important things who is transparent about who they are? What might it mean to let yourself be built into a Spiritual house? How might you go about it? Where are you living in the dark?  Where are you living in the light?  How is God at work in you today?

April 30 ● Easter 3 How to Survive: Seek Holiness ● 1 Peter 1: 13-23 Are Holiness and spirituality the same thing? Why or why not? Luther says about Holiness “The little word “holy” designates that which is God’s own and is due to Him alone…therefore see to it that you do not let yourselves be led again into the worldly lusts. But let God alone reign, live, and work in you.” We tend to think of worldly lusts in terms of personal vices, but are there other desires that can lead you from God? Peter encourages his readers to be holy, how might an ...

Is there a sense that when one becomes a Christian one will necessarily feel different than the culture one lives in? Explain. Peter affirms the identity of those he writes to, how does remembering who we really are help us to navigate anxious times? Peter states that we will be tested; what is expectation of how we will come out of the testing in the end? Why is this ...

Word Studies for the Week of April 9th, 2017

April 9 ● Passion Sunday: The Message of the Cross ● Matthew 27: 11-54 In your faith life, do you primarily look to Good Friday or to Easter for inspiration (or perhaps both)? Have you ever thought what you would have done if you witnessed Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross first hand? What did you come up with? Luther talked about the cross as a “joyous exchange” where Christ takes our sin upon himself to overcome it, do you think about the cross in this way? What would motivate the crowd to ask for Barabbas instead of Jesus? What would motivate them to ...
