In Exile

July 2, 2017 Preacher: Daniel Huskey Series: Exile

Topic: God's Love Scripture: 1 Peter 1:1–1:2

There is a myriad of things that, whether intentionally or not, distract us from embracing our true identity in Christ. But we live under the immensely joyous reality that all those who are in Christ Jesus have been chosen by God the Father. And he who has called us to him will also sustain us. This is the joy Peter is exhorting over the ‘elect exiles’ of 1st Peter.

So when we fail, just like Peter did, we have the utmost confidence that God is for us and will help us endure. We do not have to fret or fear when those around us persecute us, revile us, slander us, or exclude us. Our citizenship in his Kingdom through the atonement found in Jesus is what we cling to. With this joy, we are equipped to live in a way that reflects the goodness and glory of God and show and share the gospel of grace to all around us.
