STRANGERS IN THIS WORLD
1 Peter 1:17-19 “Since you call on a Father who judges each man’s works impartially, live your lives as strangers here in reverent fear. For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers, but with precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect.”
The Scene: A carpet bag designed for light travel made from carpet material. An indication that one carrying such a bag was not of the local area, but from another place.
Strangers in this world are those who choose to follow Jesus the Christ.
John 15:19 ” If you belonged to the world it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of this world. That is why the world hates you.”
John 16:33 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
1 John 2:15, 17 ” Do not love the world or anything in the world. The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever.”
