Like aliens in a strange land

"By faith Abraham, when he was called, obeyed by going out to a place which he was to receive for an inheritance; and he went out, not knowing where he was going.  By faith he lived as an alien in the land of promise, as in a foreign land, dwelling in tents with Isaac and Jacob, fellow heirs of the same promise;  for he was looking for the city which has foundations, whose architect and builder is God." Hebrews 11:8-10

Just like Abraham we need to be living in this world like a stranger in a foreign land.  This world is not our home. we have a home eternal in the heavens.

Jesus said,
"They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world." John 17:16 
We need to realize that we are only here on this earth only temporarily and live with our eyes set on our real home, heaven.

Yes, more people need to realise that there is an eternal home that we need to work towards. "This world is not my home, I'm just a passin' through"
