Living in a Foreign Land


Our citizenship is in heaven. We live on earth as strangers and pilgrims. This world is not as it should be or as it will be. There is suffering. There are situations and even people that will oppose God's purposes in our lives. But with the help of His word, His Spirit and our brothers and sisters in the Lord, we have what we need to be overcomers.
