As one who is not a native Mainer, I know that I will always be “from away”. No matter how hard I try to blend in, there’s no hiding the fact that I am out of my element.
If you are a Christian, you’re “from away” too–no matter where you were born. Your true home is heaven, and that means that, as long as you live here on earth, you’re going to face many challenges.
But God has given us the Book of 1 Peter to help us journey through life successfully. This Sunday at White Pine, we are going to launch into a study of this practical and encouraging book. I pray that, as you engage in this study, your longing for home will grow and your impact in the foreign land through which you are traveling will deepen.
