The pursuit of comfort and the attempt to find satisfaction in the things of this world are constant temptations for the Christian, but Scripture teaches us that our true citizenship is in heaven (Phil. 3:20). We are pilgrims passing through. And yet, the Lord has been pleased to keep us here for however long He chooses in order that we might reflect His glory and lead others to Him. We are aliens who have been called out of the world in order to reach the world with the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ!
