"Happy are those who are strong in the Lord,
who set their minds on a pilgrimage to Jerusalem".
As christians, we are just pilgrims here on earth.The world is not our permanent home. We should not live conveniently at home in this wicked world. While throdding the very narrow road of the Christian journey to the City of GOD, a Christian should set his/her heart on heavenly things, upon eternity, on the Glory of GOD.
The Christian walk on earth is like walking in the middle of a battlefield. It is filled with fierytrials. We should very very watchful and prayerful.We are always prone to be a casualty. But whatever happen, in order to endure we have to focus on the Glory of Heaven, where GOD is majestically enthroned.We must always keep in our mind, that no matter how difficult the walk is , it is just temporal. The world and all of the things that it provides are passing away, bound to end. It is a reality. We should rejoice indeed that we are among the called out ones.
GOD bless. GOD speed.
