1 Peter 2:11  Dearly beloved, I beseech [you] as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul; 
The apostle Peter pleads with his readers to consider that they are strangers and pilgrims on this earth and have fleshly lust that wars against their souls. This scripture paints a mental picture to me of a soldier passing through enemy territory with shells bursting and mines exploding. Just as all seems calm and he seeks to rest, a sniper fires from ambush. There is no rest! Our spiritual warfare will continue until we leave the hostile territory of this world and are at rest with Jesus.
We used to sing the song, This world is Not My Home, I'm Just a Passing Through. How easy we forget. How easy it is:
  •  For us to let up and make ourselves a target for the enemy. 
  •  To lose sight of our eternal goal.
  •  To think that this world will go on forever.
  •  To forget that Jesus said He would come in an hour that we think not.
  •  To rest in our own righteousness and forget that our righteousness comes from Him.
May we ever be mindful that we are in transit to that heavenly city. Our goal is to see Jesus and be at eternal rest with Him.

I had to explain this joke to Marie. See if you get it.
Two social workers find an injured man lying in an alley. The poor man had been mugged and beaten.

One social worker turns to the other and says, "You know the person that did this really needs help."

Keep Looking Up!
