An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

(1Pe 1:1 KJV)  Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, to the strangers scattered throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia,

(Proverbs 23 also read)

When Peter writes to a certain group of people who are located in what is today Turkey, they become the strangers in the King James Bible, and “aliens” in the New American Standard.  This is a good reminder to us that we are not supposed to fit into our world.  We are called to a higher calling.  We need to remember that.

Remember this song?

This world is not my home
I’m just a passing through.
My treasures are laid up
Somewhere beyond the blue.
So?  We should keep this in mind.  This is just a temporary home that we live in.  God has called us to be witnesses, salt, light, but not monuments.
