Abiding in Christ October 21 of Abiding in Christ

We are sojourners just passing through

Brethren, as long as we live on this earth we reside in the temporary home of our earthly bodies only for a little while.

We have pitched our tents as it were only for a brief stay, we are sojourners just passing through.

This world s not our home but we are simply traveling, passing through on our way to a new Kingdom, an Everlasting City, whose Builder and Maker is the Lord.

Jesus said, " In my Father's house there are many mansions I go to prepare a place for you, I am coming again, and I will take you to myself that where I am, there you may also be."

Seeing that we are sojourners just passing through, our affections ought to be set on the things that are above, where Christ is seated at the Right Hand of God, not on the things on earth.
