Part 2 | The Mark of Holiness

Lessons for Living as Misfits | 1 Peter

The Christians to whom Peter is writing in this epistle, are feeling the tension of what it means to be in the world, but not of the world. They feel, that they are essentially as "misfits." In our post-Christian, secular culture, we are feeling increasingly like misfits ourselves, and the temptation can be to change our beliefs and behaviors to better "fit in" with the world around us. In this text, we are reminded of our Biblical call to Holy Conduct. We trust this message will encourage and challenge you!

Scripture References: 1 Peter 1:13-21

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.”
