Only here for a while….

God: wants us to understand this concept…

Psalms 119:18-19 (KJV) “Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law. I am a stranger in the earth: hide not thy commandments from me”.

To get to our next destination, we need to know how to get it right in this location which is not home: if you can grasp that concept: this world is not your final resting place, then it would prove to be all that much easier to ignore the things that hold us captive.

I always question the zeal Jesus had to move on; He had no obligations to this world, because He already knew what He was heading back to when He joined His Father.

If that is what it takes to allow our eyes to be kept on the prize, just think on what is to come. God already gave us directions, some of us might not be ready to receive them, but to God be all the glory, He sent His Spirit who is a willing and ready teacher.

Ask Him for help…

    Because Christ had no ties to this world makes it all the more glorious that He would come and offer Himself on a cruel cross for a bunch of sinners like us!

      He saw it all and it didn’t hold His attention. it was dross. vw

        With due respect, I don’t understand. Christ saw the world’s condition as very horrible and loved us enough to come to this earth and die for us. That sounds like a bit more than just seeing this world as dross, I believe…

        I think we are looking at it from different perspective. He loves people, souls: He is love after all, but sin brings a separation between us if not for His shed blood. I hope this clarifies..vw

        Yes it does, and I agree with this statement! Thanks for that…Steve

  2. It makes me think of an interesting statement in the book of Hebrews: Jesus, “who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame.” How can one have joy when they endure the cross and despise the shame? The joy was knowing that His death would provide salvation to all who would believe.

    We are merely inhabitants of our vessels. I for one look forward to going home.
