WHO I AM IN CHRIST!
I am a stranger to this world, a pilgrim just passing through
These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off were assured of them, embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.
I don't know about you but I sure don't relish the thought of moving here on earth! But when I think about being a "pilgrim passing through" - now there's a move I can rejoice about - no packing - no cumbersome furniture to haul across the countryside! And what a destination! HOME! "To think of stepping ashore and finding it -- heaven! Of grasping an outstretched hand -- and finding it God's!" Now that's a move I'm looking forward to - how about you?
Do you catch yourself moaning and groaning over getting a year older? Or over the aging process? Remember we're just "pilgrims passing through" Next time you're tempted to hang your head underneath life's heavy load - lift your eyes up to the heaven and remind yourself "I AM A PILGRIM, passing through to my eternal HOME!" HALLELUJAH! I'm supposed to feel like a "stranger" here!
