Verse of the day:
They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.
There is a place where there are no nights. What exists is an everlasting day where the glory that emanates from the Father Himself illuminates every being and creation. There is a civilisation, where all things are possible, and time itself has no end. There exists a kingdom, with a different set of guiding principles – the greatest of which is love. Jesus Christ came to the earth to preach the gospel of this kingdom, demonstrate its existence through infallible proofs, and mark out a path for those who also wanted to be translated into that same kingdom.
When we believed in Jesus and confessed our faith in Him, we became bonafide citizens of that kingdom. Therefore, although we are in this world, like Jesus when He walked the earth, we are not of this world. This does not mean that we will not interact with the world – we will! However, it means that we will not be influenced by worldly processes or as scripture puts it; conformed to this world. It also means that our identity is no longer drawn from this world or anything that is in it. We now identify with our Father in heaven through our faith in Jesus.
Guided by the Holy Spirit, our responsibility is to never stop learning about the kingdom to which we belong. Filled with His power, we also like Jesus are to demonstrate the existence of that kingdom and tell others about the way to enter in. We are ambassadors of light to a world filled with darkness.
Beloved, like Jesus when He walked this earth, you are not of this world. Do not allow your identity to be defined by the things that are temporal. Listen to the Holy Spirit, as He shows you marvelous things about who you are and where you belong. As you continue to do this, you will find that you express the love of the Father and the light of His kingdom just as Jesus did!
Although I am in this world, I am not of this world. I belong to the Father and as I continue to learn from Him, I will express His love and light while I walk this earth.
