Sermon Summary

Peter’s greeting to the “temporary residents” or the “elect exiles” is one of the most theologically rich greetings in the New Testament. If this greeting were in a modern email form, it might look like this:

FROM: Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ

TO: The elect exiles in Asia Minor.

CC: The Father, Son, and Spirit and You and Me.

  • The Father chose us according to His foreknowledge
  • The Spirit sanctifies us
  • The Son sprinkles us with His blood

SUBJECT: May Grace and Peace Be Multiplied To You

The body of this “email” explains how the grace and peace of God is multiplied to a suffering church and to persecuted believers.
