Homesick

 
 

Homesick

Living in the world, but not of it,
no wonder we feel odd?
We’re of a different spirit,
in the kingdom of God!

Our gloves no longer fit,
we’ve outgrown our shoes,
transformed in Christ Jesus,
here to spread the good news!

Tho we’re homesick for heaven,
we obey God’s commission…
strangers passing through,
like aliens on a mission.

So be not surprised
when there’s no warm reception,
our Lord wasn’t welcome
in a world of deception.

Work out your own salvation
on this foreign shore,
knowing Christ will return
and reign forevermore!!

”The people of the world will hate you because you belong to Me!
For they don’t know God who sent Me.”
[John 15:18-25]
