This World Is Not My Home

JULY 2

“If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sits on the right hand of God.” – Colossians 3:1

First Peter 2:11 says that we are aliens and strangers in this world. We are in the world, but we are not of the world. We are twice-born in a world of once-born people, and we’re going to find ourselves going against the tide most of the time.

It’s like a deep sea diver who is underwater and outside his natural environment. He could not live if he weren’t linked to his life supply above. That’s the way we need to live. If we are to survive, we must stay linked to Jesus who is our life.

The Bible says we’re not to set our affections on things beneath, but on things above where Christ sits at the right hand of the Father. (Colossians 3:1)

It’s time to check your lifeline…are you trusting in anything in this world? Are you making friends with the things of this world?
