“Since you call on a Father who judges each person’s work impartially, live out your time as foreigners here in reverent fear.” 1 Peter 1:17


Reverent fear of God is an understanding that God owns tomorrow. And if He is your Father, you will one day return to Him and rest in Him.


As a child of your Heavenly Father, there is a promise for you in Isaiah 43:1 that you have been redeemed by God, that He called you by name and you are His. What does it mean to belong to God? Once Christ purchases us with His Blood, we become aliens here on earth and there is a barrier between us and everything here in this world. What does this mean?


As a channel of love, obedience and humility, you are a servant of Christ and a stranger in this world. This is because we are spirit beings living in the physical body, learning to live in a natural world dominated by satan.

 “Dear friends, I urge you, as aliens and strangers in the world, to abstain from sinful desires, which war against your soul.” 1 Peter 2:11


The only way you can say no to sin and yes to righteousness is when you submit your will to God’s will. Then you truly become a servant of Christ and a stranger here on earth. You would not say what Jesus would not want to hear, you would not go where Jesus would not be welcomed – where love, obedience, humility would not be welcomed.


Help me oh Lord to turn away from that which has the power to turn me away from You, in Jesus’ name!



“IIf you enter a lift to go to the penthouse of a skyscraper building, how many of you would first press to go to down to the underground car park? No one! Yet, in God’s way of doing things, it is our job to submit and humble ourselves under Him and His job to lift us up in His time and in His way. In other words, humility is God’s lift for elevation.”


“In Matthew 22:21 Jesus said, “So give back to Caesar what is Caesar’s, and to God what is God’s.” What is of God must return to Him. With the Word of God in your heart, you can one day return to Him in the world of glory.”


“It is only when we know that Heaven is our eternal home that the spiritual strength comes to go through every trial of life and come out stronger. As a child of God, life on this earth is a pilgrimage – where we honour God in each mountain and valley and each season of our lives, and we know that the destination is to be with Jesus forever.”
