This is Week 1 from a sermon series Daniel preached at Anthem Church in July 2017. 'Exile' is an abbreviated look into the book of 1 Peter and the lives that we are called to live as 'Elect Exiles.'
Summary: There are a myriad of things that, whether intentionally or not, distract us from embracing our true identity in Christ. But we live under the immensely joyous reality that all those who are in Christ Jesus have been chosen by God the Father. And he who has called us to him will also sustain us. This is the joy Peter is exhorting over the ‘elect exiles’ of 1st Peter.
