Show Notes

In 2 Peter 2:11, the writer describes Christians as “sojourners,” “pilgrims,” “aliens,” “exiles,” “strangers.” We are citizens of heaven. We must realize that we are just passing through the earth on a journey towards our permanent home. Therefore we should not get attached to this world. We should not love it. We should be in the world, but not of the world. In today’s top ten list, explore ten ways to live as exiles. This includes directives to abstain from sinful desires, to live in ways that honor God, to treat everyone with high regard, and to follow the example of Christ. Additional scriptures referenced include 2 Peter 2:12-25; Romans 13:1-10; and John 13:35.
