Living in Exile
Time after Time Peter makes a point to describe to these believers and to us, who they are in the Lord. He has already given several descriptions at this point in the letter as to who you are, in the introduction and the first chapter, but he goes on in chapter 2, identifying us further. We get wrapped up in a lot of things. These identifiers - should replace some of those things. Peter makes a point to describe who we are as believers for a reason. We forget. We get so wrapped up in the world that we lose our identities and become one of them. Confronted with truth.
