1 Peter 1:1-2 – I’m an alien

Introduction

            I’m an alien

            The Italian experience

            Elect and Exiles – Stand fast and stand out

 

Our Relationship with God – The Elect

 

            We were Chosen – “according to the foreknowledge…”

 

                        Rejected and Despised versus Accepted and Embraced

 

 

            We were Called – “sanctified by the Spirit”

 

                        “Set apart” versus “being apart”

 

 

            We were cleansed – “sprinkled with his blood”

 

                        Alienation versus Assimilation

 

 

Our Relationship with the World – The Exile

                        An alien in your hometown

 

            We look different

 

                        Out of fashion

 

 

            We speak differently

 

                        Speaking gobbledygook

 

 

            We think differently

 

                        Physical and Spiritual

 

            We act differently

           

                        Dancing to a different beat
