Bible Text: 1 Peter 1:1-2 |


  • Elected in Love (1 Pet 1:1; Eze 16:4-17)
  • Exiles of Dispersion (1 Pet 1:1; CS Lewis quote below; Matt 5:13-16, 19-21)
  • Called to Live in this World (1 Pet 1:2, 17-19)


At present we are on the outside of the world, the wrong side of the door. We discern the freshness and purity of morning, but they do not make us fresh and pure. We cannot mingle with the splendors we see. But all the leaves of the New Testament are rustling with the rumor that it will not always be so. Some day, God willing, we shall get in.”

― C.S. Lewis, The Weight of Glory
