           We, as Christians, are aliens in this world. God specifically says in the bible that we shall not love the earth, for the earth is not our home. Heaven is where we belong, Heaven is our true home. We are just visitors on this earth. The time that we have on this earth is nothing compared to the eternity that we will spend on Heaven. Christians are so, so different to the people on this earth. We do not and should not conform to the ways of this earth. We belong to a much greater Kingdom!

1 John 2:15 - Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

"If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you." (John 15:19)

1 Peter 2:11-12 "Dear friends, I urge you, as aliens and strangers in the world, to abstain from sinful desires, which war against your soul. Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day He visits us."

Philippians 3:20 "But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ"

"I have given them Your word; and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one. They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world." (John 17:14)

Song: This Is Not Where I Belong by Building 429

Sometimes it feels like I'm watching from the outside

Sometimes it feels like I'm breathing but am I alive

I will keep searching for answers that aren't here to find

All I know is I'm not home yet

This is not where I belong

Take this world and give me Jesus

This is not where I belong

 (Continues on..)

This song gets me through a lot, hopefully it helps you too!

Have a Christ-centered day!
