Heb. 13:14 For this world is not our home; we are looking forward to our city in heaven, which is yet to come.

I am so grateful today that this world is not my home. I look around me and it is not the kind of place I want to spend eternity in. It is getting more blatantly evil all the time. There is no regard for life throughout the world. People do not respect one another and they treat one other with cruelty. It is a very self-driven world. It is essentially the survival of the fitest and those who aren't fit are squashed by those who are stronger.

God promises us an eternal home that is free from all traces of sin. Sin will not even be a concept in heaven. It will be a place where the glory of God will fill every space. It will be a place where pure love for one another will be the only way we will act. Everyone will be on equal footing; there will be no favoritism there. It will be a place of such beauty that there are not words to even describe it. The Lord is there right now preparing a place for us in it.

Jesus told us to not let our hearts be troubled by the things of this life. Live in fellowship with the Lord, striving to be holy in all you do, and you will be home someday. We will not be spared troubles in this life, but it will be worth it all when we get to heaven to be with our Lord. Keep your eyes fixed on Jesus and you will make it. Don't let the world draw you away from Him. Don't let yourself be attached to what is here. This world is not our home! No matter how bad things may be for you, heaven is something to look forward to. Keep you eyes focused on Christ at all times and you will get there.
