 TOO MUCH "AT HOME" -Tozer

TOO MUCH "AT HOME"
One of the most telling indictments against many of us who compose our Christian churches is the almost complete acceptance of the contemporary scene as our permanent home! We have been working and earning, getting and spending, and now we are enjoying the creature comforts known to human beings in this land. You may bristle a bit and ask: "Is there anything wrong with being comfortable?" Let me answer in this way: if you are a Christian and you are comfortably "at home" in Chicago or Toronto, in Iowa or Alberta - or any other address on planet earth, the signs are evident that you are in spiritual trouble. The spiritual equation reads like this: the greater your contentment with your daily circumstances in this world, the greater your defection from the ranks of God's pilgrims enroute to a city whose architect and builder is God Himself! If we can feel that we have put down our roots in this present world, then our Lord still has much to teach us about faith and attachment to our Savior!

Prayer
Lord, I pray that you not let me grow too comfortable here, but remind me that this world is not my home, only a temporary residence. Let me not grow content with this contaminated world.

Scripture
These all died in faith... and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.
— Hebrews 11:13
