His kingdom is not of this world, therefore, neither is ours! As believers, we are called to hold firmly to the biblical teaching that we are merely sojourners passing through this world on our way to glory.
From Genesis to Revelation, the totality of the Bible focuses on the pilgrimage for which God has redeemed His people. We pray that everytime you put this sweatshirt on, you are embolden to live as a Sojourner.“
But they now desire a better place — a heavenly one. Therefore, God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared a city for them.” Hebrews 11:16
