1 Peter 1:17

".....Live your lives as strangers here in reverent fear." NIV

".....Pass the time of your sojourning here in fear." KJV

As Christians, we are no longer of this world or the things that are in it. We are strangers and aliens in a foreign land. If we follow the teachings of the Lord, we will live with watchful eyes and careful steps so that we won't get pulled into the life this world would have us live. It is the evil one's goal to trap us in the sin and ungodliness in this world. If we live as strangers here, always alert, we will be able get past the treasures of this world and enter into the Kingdom of God that was made possible to us by the blood of Jesus Christ.

Heavenly Father, we need your grace and mercy to live in this world of ungodliness and selfish pleasure. Help us to be on guard, living in reverent fear so that we don't get caught up in the things of this world. We need your help to live as strangers here so that we will make it to our home with You where we belong.
