Hebrews 11:13, “These all died in faith without having received the promises, but they saw them from a distance, greeted them, and confessed that they were foreigners and temporary residents on the earth.” We sing about this not being our home and we are just passing through but do we really live our lives like that? We should all try to live with a sense of urgency that exhibits the fact that we are indeed strangers here and just passing through. We should pray and be sensitive to God’s calling so that when we have the opportunity to minister to someone we won’t let Satan whisper in our ear, “it’s o.k. you can do that tomorrow when you see them.” If we do indeed profess to be foreigners passing through then we should think, “I better minister to them now because I may not get another opportunity to show God’s love to them.” I have often been guilty of allowing the thoughts of “I will stop and talk to them tomorrow or I will invite them to church the next time I see them…..etc.” to fill my head and then not act on what God has placed before me to do. IF we can all work on remembering we are just passing through on our way to our home in heaven, think of the possibilities, all the powerful ministries we can be a part of because we know that God may not put those opportunities in front of us again!
