1 Peter 1:17-
A Call to Strangeness
And if you address as Father the One who judges impartially based on each one's work, you are to conduct yourselves in reverence during this time of temporary residence.
We should also be Strange because Our Redemption did not come cheap. The cost to move us from citizens of this world to citizens of heaven was a pricey one, gold or silver or works did not make it happen it was the Precious Blood of Christ (v. 19) the perfect Lamb of God
READ 17-21--For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers, 19 but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect. 20 He was chosen before the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake. 21 Through him you believe in God, who raised him from the dead and glorified him, and so your faith and hope are in God.
Are you strange enough to be considered from another country?
