victory Vitamin Blog – John 17:15-16

“My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one.  They are not of the world, even as I am not of it.”

– John 17:15-16 NIV

Not of this world?  Does that mean we’re aliens?  Well, yes, if by that we mean that this is not our home.  Heaven is our eternal home and because of our faith in Jesus, our standards and goals are different than those of the world around us.  The older I get, the less I fear death, and the more I long for the return of Jesus.  That may be because the struggle of trying to live a Christ-like life in a sinful world takes its toll after a while.  It can be challenging to be honest and do right, to show kindness and forgiveness. There are many times when I feel like I don’t fit in.  The great news is that we are forgiven when we fail, and we have God’s promise that He will never leave us or forsake us.  He will be with you to the end of this earthly life.  But while we are here, we have a job to do.  We are Christ’s ambassadors; representatives of God’s heavenly Kingdom.  Our words and actions will show others that we have something beautiful and beneficial waiting for us, something they may want for themselves as well!  We are strangers here, heaven is our home.  God will strengthen you to make the journey as a bold and faithful Christian.
