1 Peter 2:11 - 2:23

1 Peter
1 PeterSteve Gregg

In this passage, Steve Gregg discusses the concept of pilgrimage and our role as Christians in society. He emphasizes that we are merely passing through this world, and our ultimate desire is for a heavenly country. Additionally, he touches upon the idea of government authority and submits that while civil disobedience may be legitimate for godly people, we must recognize the sphere of authority that the government has been given by God. Ultimately, he urges us to live among Gentiles in a way that honors God and demonstrates a better way of life.
