This world is not your home // 08-09-20

“Friends, this world is not your home, so don’t make yourselves cosy in it. Don’t indulge your ego at the expense of your soul. Live an exemplary life among the natives so that your actions will refute their prejudices. Then they’ll be won over to God’s side and be there to join in the celebration when he arrives.” 1 Peter‬ ‭2:11-12‬ ‭MSG‬‬

In the light of eternity, this world and everything in it is so temporary! Let’s not get so focused on our comfort here that we forget about the more expansive life to come! Lord, keep reminding me that I am a citizen of heaven, and I am a pilgrim here, just passing through. Help me to always have one eye on the home you are preparing, and to live right now in a way that honours You, my life a witness to who You are and what You have done. May I own the name Jesus, and be known, above anything else I stand for, as Yours! Amen 🙏🏼
