On the road again

‘To God’s elect, strangers in the world... who have been chosen according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through the sanctifying work of the Spirit, for obedience to Jesus Christ and sprinkling by his blood’ (1 Peter 1.1-2, NIV).

The Music Exchange Richard Simpkin

I’m back on the godliness trail.

1 Peter is the book I encourage all the professional musicians I work with to read when on tour or away from Christian fellowship for extended periods of time. It’s a letter which is full of assurance as to our identity in Christ and our hope in heaven, while at the same time providing a rich dose of realism as to the world we live in. Peter says that we are loved by God, our home is in heaven, but presently we are strangers in a perishing world.
