1 Peter 1:1-2 – I’m an alien


            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
