When do you receive it?  How should we conduct ourselves as we wait for Jesus’ return? What is God’s commandment for us? How is God going to judge us? When was Jesus foreordained as the Lamb of salvation? How do we purify our souls?

  I Peter 2

How should we desire the Word? Why should we desire the Word? How will others be able to glorify God through us?What are our spiritual sacrifices? What type of suffering is commendable before God? What example of suffering did Jesus leave for us?
