    Aliens and strangers in the world. We find the phrase “aliens and strangers in the world” in 1 Peter There we read: 1 Peter “Dear friends, I urge you, as aliens and strangers in the world, to abstain from fleshly desires, which war against your soul.” The Word of God tells us that we are aliens and strangers in this world.

Isn't it remarkable that in a book as weighty and spiritual as 1 Peter, we should read the simple and practical command: open your homes to each other and don't grumble about the hassle. The more alien we feel in this world the more crucial this becomes.
