Encouragement for Resident Aliens

1 Peter 1:1-2

 Today we start a series on the First Letter of Peter. Written in the mid 60’s AD, Peter addresses Christians who were displaced and being persecuted for their faith. While we don’t face such a strong opposition, our culture is changing and Christian values and morals are no longer the norm and not always welcome. In any era or any place, while on earth we are exiles or resident aliens. We are sojourners on our way to our true home. This letter speaks to us.
