Part 1 | Learning to Endure Suffering
Scripture References: 1 Peter 1:1-12
From Series: "Lessons for Living as Misfits | 1 Peter"
1 Peter is written to first-century believers who are dispersed throughout Roman Provinces across Asia Minor. Peter addresses these believers as "elect exiles" because they are citizens of heaven and feel as “strangers” or “misfits” in this world. In the post-Christian culture in which we now find ourselves, we are feeling increasingly like misfits. We are in the world, but not of the world, and this can be quite frustrating at times. Throughout 1 Peter, we will see many practical, relevant lessons for how to live in this world as a “misfit.”
