1 Peter 2:11 ” Dear friends, I urge you as aliens and strangers in this world, to abstain from sinful desires.”
The Scene: A passport and visa depiction of the Christian’s origin, as being from heaven, not earth.
Psalm 119:19 “I am a stranger on earth; do not hide your commands from me.”
Our life on earth is only temporary and brief, when compared to eternity in heaven. Our lifetime on earth is like a shooting star or comet zipping across the sky. Seen only for a brief moment in time; heaven is timeless. Our time with God Almighty in heaven will be forever.
2 Corinthians 4:18 “So we fix our eyes on not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is only temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”
Philippians 3:18-20 “For, as I have often told you before and now say again with tears, many live as enemies of the cross of Christ. Their destiny is destruction, their god is their stomach, and their glory is in their shame. Their mind is on earthly things. But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ.”
