Paul said that Christians are to “stay true to the Lord.” This is often difficult to do unless we remind ourselves continually to keep our eyes on Jesus and never forget that this world is not our home.
George Whitfield constantly prayed, “Lord keep a thorn in my nest so I won’t get too comfortable and forget that I am here on this earth to work for You every day of my life.”
Prayer: Lord, may everything about us show those around us that we are faithful and true to You, our Savior. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
