May all Christians be reminded that this world is not our home, we are merely passing through. We are citizens of another land; created for another place. And in that land, there will be no votes cast, not debates, no political pundits. In that land there will be a certain King. One Ruler for all eternity.
In that Kingdom, there will be no doubt, no shame, no tears, no sorrow. Only love. Only light. Only worship of the one true God. Forever. A kingdom that will never be shaken. An inheritance that is imperishable.
Until that Kingdom comes, and until God’s dwelling place is with men, may we never forget to love our neighbors, pray for our leaders, proclaim the gospel, and walk in righteousness. May we never forget that the only Christian nation is the church, and the only hope for the world is Jesus.
Yes, we are citizens of a far distant land. We long for home. But let’s resolve to be the best tourists in this land until we reach our destination.
