This World Is Not Our Home

By Allen White

For I have told you often before, and I say it again with tears in my eyes, that there are many whose conduct shows they are really enemies of the cross of Christ. They are headed for destruction. Their god is their appetite, they brag about shameful things, and they think only about this life here on earth. But we are citizens of heaven, where the Lord Jesus Christ lives. And we are eagerly waiting for him to return as our Savior. He will take our weak mortal bodies and change them into glorious bodies like his own, using the same power with which he will bring everything under his control. Philippians 3:16-21

If you’ve ever visited another country, you know that there are some cultural differences for sure. Everything from the money to the food and the clothes to even the language might be completely different from back home.

When you’re going somewhere temporarily, you do just enough to get by. You exchange the currency you need. You learn just enough of the language. You don’t exchange every penny you have in the bank. You don’t stop speaking English for a new language permanently. It’s just a temporary visit. Life on earth is just a temporary visit. Heaven is the believer’s home. Travel lightly! Use a backpack, not a moving van.

  1. That's a great perspective to always keep in mind. I like the suggestion of using the backpack.
