Those who are born again of the Spirit of God are aliens and strangers in this world. We are in this world but not OF this world. We do not fit into this world and we stick out like a sore thumb. If we are like the world then we are OF the world, but if we follow and obey Jesus Christ and if we have been transformed by the indwelling of His Spirit in us, then we are different and this world will reject us, will hate us and will persecute us.
Many believers claim to be born again but there is no difference between them and the rest of the world. They just believe in Jesus like the demons do, the demons also believe in Jesus BUT THE DEMONS TREMBLE because they know that their day of reckoning is coming. If we believe in Jesus that He is Lord and Master then we OBEY Him and we are transformed into His likeness and then it becomes true what Jesus said:”You will be hated by all men.”
If Jesus truly lives IN US them we will be aliens and strangers in this world because we will be of the Kingdom of God, our focus will be on Jesus and DOING what He tells us to do and BEING what He wants us to be.
Are we aliens and strangers in this world? If we are not LIKE Jesus, then we are not OF Jesus.
May Jesus bless you.
