Arise with Christ December 04 of Arise with Christ

Just pilgrims passing through

There is a way that seems right but it leads to destruction.
There is a way that goes against the grain of human thought and endeavor, yet it is the way that leads to everlasting life and salvation.
Brethren, if we were of the world then the world would receive us.
But because we are not of this world the world cannot understand our ways let alone receive us.
This world is not our home. We are citizens of the Kingdom of Heaven.
We are just pilgrims passing through this world on our way to the promised land.
We are sojourners and strangers in a foreign land.
We do not belong to any religion agreed upon by men, but instead we belong to God.
If we belong to God then we should obey His voice.
