Something that should concern us strongly as believers in Jesus Christ is that the world can not, should not and is not our home. We belong to a kingdom that is not of this world, we belong to a celestial citizenship that we firmly hope. And we should not shrink from this knowing that the world is not our home, and that being in the world, sometimes we want to adapt or get used to the system of this world and this should not be our way of thinking.
We have as an example the prophets in the old testament and the apostles in the new testament, our beloved primitive church, and beyond all our Lord Jesus Christ, who did not esteem this world, who hoped for something better and never got used to it, nor adapted to this world. Did you know that the worst thing that can happen to a believer is to feel very comfortable in this world?
One of my favorite passages in the Scriptures is Hebrews 11, since it speaks to us of men of God who had an unshakeable faith and that teaches us not to faint and even in the midst of weakness stand firm.
