Heb. 11:13 “These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.”
When was the last time that you considered yourself a stranger and a pilgrim on this planet? That is what the Heroes of Faith in Hebrews 11 considered themselves. They are the greatest men and women the earth has ever known. They are those that God says “whom the world was not worthy of”. These peoples’ basis of their faith was their continual gaze into eternity. All had their eyes on the things to come.
As Christians, our defense against the call of the world to us is to recognize that we are just pilgrims on this earth. We are called for a greater purpose that lasts for eternity! Through our testimonies and live, our Lord can free others and make them focus on eternity. The only time that worldliness can start to take a grip on our lives is when we have lost sight of why we are here and the fact that we are just pilgrims on this planet.
