December 04 of Arise with Christ
Just pilgrims passing through
There is a way that seems right but it leads to
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
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.
