---Strangers in a Strange Land

 
Jesus doesn’t sugarcoat it when he tells us that in this world we will have struggles. Not only will we face hard times and opposition, but in fact we shouldn’t be surprised by the challenges that we encounter.
 
Jesus know’s something that we should come to grips with, this world is not our home, we are aliens in a foreign land. And as tourist, we should not act like the locals. He challenges us to answer hate with love, to find joy even in the midst of trials, and to rely on a strength beyond ourselves. We are meant to be different that the world that we are temporarily living in.
 
We invite you to join us in this series as we study the book of 1 Peter, and cover topics such as how to respond to persecution and how to live in a culture that’s increasingly attempting to pull us away from God.
