“So whether we are at home or away, we make it our aim to please Him.”
2 Corinthians 5:9
This school with all of the homework, all of the vacations, and all of its newness often does not feel like home. For those with family and friends, foundation and familiarity, there prods a longing to return there—a longing to restore what was. Though as Christians this is not our goal. We make it our aim to please him regardless of familiarity or location. We are ones who focus on the present but are not near-sighted. We are ones commissioned as ambassadors to a place we generally do not call our home. Yea, we would rather be home; but, to live is Christ. The time of return is not certain but the return itself is. As we grown inwardly for redemption and look towards the coming of Christ, we do not lose sight of what is set before us: a world uncomfortable yet in desperate need of the Gospel.
“Therefore having this ministry…we do not lose heart. Though our outer-self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day.”
2 Corinthians 4:16
