It can be easy to get caught up in the busyness and distractions of this world. We may find ourselves focusing on our career goals, our material possessions, or our relationships, and forget that this life is just temporary and we are just passing through to our eternal home in heaven.
The Bible reminds us of this truth in Psalm 39:4, which says, “Lord, make me to know mine end, and the measure of my days, what it is; that I may know how frail I am.” David reminds us that our time on earth is limited and that we are fragile human beings. It is a reminder to make the most of our time here and to keep our focus on what truly matters.
One way to keep our focus on what truly matters is to remember that we are just passing through this world. The apostle Paul writes in Philippians 3:20, “For our conversation is in heaven, from whence also we look for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.” This verse reminds us that our ultimate home is in heaven and that our time on earth is just a temporary dwelling.
This truth can be especially comforting when we are facing difficult situations or circumstances. When we remember that this life is temporary, it can help to put things into perspective and give us hope and peace.
I remember a time when I was feeling uncertain about my future and wondering what God had in store for me. I prayed and sought guidance, but it seemed like the answers weren’t coming. It was only when I remembered to just trust Him and that my ultimate hope and joy is in the Lord, that I was able to find peace and trust in His plan for my life. It was a reminder to let go of my own desires and expectations, and to trust that God’s plans for me are good and perfect (Jeremiah 29:11). As I held onto this truth, I was able to find strength and hope in the midst of my uncertainty.
So, let us remember that we are just passing through. Let us not get too caught up in the distractions and busyness of this world, but let us keep our focus on what truly matters: our relationship with the Lord and our eternal home in heaven. Let us follow the example of the apostle Paul and eagerly wait for the Savior, knowing that our citizenship is in heaven.
In conclusion, “Just Passing Through” is a reminder that this life is temporary and that our ultimate home is in heaven. It is a reminder to keep our focus on what truly matters. Let us remember that we are just passing through this world and that our ultimate hope and joy is in the Lord.
