Rock Solid Living
1 Peter 2:11-12

Who we are as Christians should guide us to rock solid living. In 1 Peter 2:11-13, Peter shows us how we should live having been the recipients of God's great mercy (1:3). In our text, Peter uses two challenges to begin showing us how we should live as believers in Jesus.
I. Abstinence is an important element of rock solid living (v 11).

A. Beloved

B. Abstain from the passion of the flesh

C. Which war against your soul
II. Attractiveness is an important element of rock solid living (v 12).

C. So that
Conclusion: Let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your father who is in heaven (Matt. 5:16)
