Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings. 1 Peter 8-9

Exiles. Foreigners. Sheep in lion country. Peter’s words do more than just describe the circumstances of his own time, they have a way of giving voice to the daily reality of our own current experience. We are living in Babylon but it’s obvious that we are not from here. What does it look like to build a life in enemy territory? Peter’s answers may surprise you.
