THIS WORLD IS NOT MY HOME…..

THIS WORLD IS NOT MY HOME…..

     More and more I am feeling that what I believe as a Christian does not fit in with our current culture.  There are some churches that try to fit in with today’s culture so much in order to make people feel comfortable that they have compromised the Word.

     When God raised up New Life for the Nations, He never mentioned anything about making people comfortable during the service.   Our assignment here in this area was to teach the Word of faith and grace, love people, and pray for them. While it is important to reach out in winning others to Christ,  the purpose of the church is to “make disciples.”  

     I thought of the old song my mom used to sing: “This world is not my home; I’m just a-passing through. My treasures are laid up somewhere beyond the blue.  The angels beckon me from heaven’s open door…and I can’t feel at home in this world any more.”

     The contemporary song that speaks to me is:

“All I know is I’m not home yet.  This is not where I belong.  Take this world but give me Jesus.  This is not where I belong.”
