If you have become a Christian by putting your faith in Jesus Christ you are an exile and not living in your native country. When you became a Christian you acquired a new citizenship.
But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. (Philippians 3:20)
Because of this our present status in this world is that of exile.
Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ,
To those who are elect exiles of the Dispersion in Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia. (1 Peter 1:10)
