To be a Christian means that we are not citizens of this world, but of heaven. We are pilgrims on a journey through this world. Our companion and guide is the word of God and the Spirit. We persevere against the resistance of our sinful nature and the world, in the strength that God gives us by His Holy Spirit. Our example is the Lord Jesus who has gone ahead, who has opened the way to God by His death on the cross and His resurrection and has prepared a place for us in His heavenly Kingdom.
“Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, for our God is a consuming fire.” (Hebrews 12:28–29, NIV)
