Little Nuggets: You’re In The World, You’re Not of The World
You’re In the World, You’re Not of the World
Doesn’t it sound so sci-fi? When my mom use to say that to me and my sister growing up, I thought it was something E.T.’s mom would’ve said to him as they started their journey to earth. I’d forgot all about this paraphrase of scripture (John 17: 14-15), until recently when someone said it one Sunday morning.
As Christ-followers we live in this world, but we shouldn’t be compelled by the things of the world. It can sometimes seem that unbelievers have it easy and everything fall into place for them. It can seem like they are succeeding at life and don’t have any real struggles, but that’s the trick of Satan.
Life here on earth is temporary, so are the material things, and the comforts this world employs. This world will pass away and the Kingdom of God will stand.
This place is not our home, our eternal home is heaven–when we get there, what a day of rejoicing that will be.
Stay heavenly focus, keep your mind on the spiritual things, not material things. Deny your flesh and feed your spirit. And when this world pass away, you will hear your Heavenly Father say, “well done my good and faithful servant.”
What’s the first thing you want to do when you get to heaven. Let me know in the comment section below.
MAy God be with you until we meet again.
