The Loyalty of Elect Exiles
God and His Elect Exiles
Scripture/Text: 1 Peter 2:13-17; Pastor Phill Howell preaches this Sunday (April 23, 2023) on 1 Peter 2:13-17. The big idea this week is that believers are a heavenly people sent to do heavenly politics by heaven's power. The passage shows us how we as spiritual aliens in this world are called to be humble, serve others, and submit to everyone in varying degrees. God's will is that our good deeds will subvert the powers of this world which is exemplified by the person and works of Jesus Christ who came to serve and save humanity from sin.
