Living as God’s people

“Who do you think you are” has become a popular TV show in recent times; the idea that we may be related to characters involved in great historical events catches people’s imagination, and helps form part of their identity.

This week’s passage in 1 Peter shows that our identity as Christians is now centred on God.


We have been adopted by the most active and central figure in all of history!

Peter tries to help us understand the concept in several different ways, with 2 v 9 being a particularly key verse “But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.” (NIV-UK). If we really start to grasp who it is God has called us and enabled us to be, many of the limiting ideas we have previously held start to melt away. It can be hard to shake off deeply held views on our identity, and to accept that God wants us to take on His identity instead.

This may prompt some questions for each of us to think about (and maybe discuss with our small groups):

What things do you see people gain their sense of identity from?

Does knowing you are a child of God make this different for you?

What areas of identity in your life might you need to let God work on?
