1 Peter 2:11-12 says Dear friends, I urge you, as foreigners and exiles, to abstain from sinful desires, which wage war against your soul. 12 Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day he visits us. What a true verse of scripture we must be reminded of daily, that we do not belong to this world. We are strangers and pilgrims who are on a journey towards Heaven to reign with our Lord and Saviour. But until that great day comes it will be asked of us to go through many trials, difficuties, hardships and temptations in order to make us strong in our faith and trust in Almighty God. 2 Cor 4:8-9 makes this point very clear, " We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair;9 persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed". Exactly how are we to be seperate in a wicked, depraved and sensual world today? What will it take to stay focused towards the goal for the prize thats right before us? Know this, satan will always seek out ways to distract us from our journey and get us thinking about living it up here just a little while longer....eat, drink and be merry, indulge in every lustful appetite you can think of. He simply wants you to forget your just a sojourner, forget those eternal bliessings and rewards in Christ, and yes miss out on Gods best. King Solomon said it best, Ecclesiastes 2:1 said to myself, "Come now, I will test you with pleasure to find out what is good." But that also proved to be meaningless, lord teach us to be sober and vigilant and know that this world is not our home.
We will be discussing how too many times two people begin a relationship with no knowledge of who they are in a relationship with...only to realize that the person they are with is not at all the person they thought they met. Everyone has a representative that they send out on dates, but this representative cannot last more than 90 days. Unfortunately for most of us, we have already slept with the person, and sometimes even begin living with them. The difficulty with this is that we end up mistaking infatuation, desire, and even sex for love, but when we try to operate in these things, we lose the ability to learn how to operate in love. It is best that we get to know each other first and foremost, in order to develop and maintain a relationship that will enable us tol learn how to operate in love.
1 Peter 2:11King James Version (KJV)
11 Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul;
1 Peter 2:11The Message (MSG)
11-12 Friends, this world is not your home, so don’t make yourselves cozy in it. Don’t indulge your ego at the expense of your soul. Live an exemplary life among the natives so that your actions will refute their prejudices. Then they’ll be won over to God’s side and be there to join in the celebration when He arrives.

“Where, O death is your victory? Where, O death is your sting?” (1 Corinthians 15:55)
We all share in the hope of the resurrection. Whether we are on earth or in heaven, we are all God’s people; in communion, in relationship with God through Jesus Christ – “one body in Christ, and individually members of one another” (Romans 12:5). “Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, to the saints which are at Ephesus…” (Ephesians 1:1, KJV) For more than 2,000 years, Satan’s core strategy to defeat the pilgrims of the church has always been to divide and isolate us from one another; divide and conquer, it seems.
We, faithful pilgrims know that only Jesus Christ Conquers; in Greek, denoted by “IC XC NI KA”.
When we forget who we are in the Lord Jesus Christ, it is easy to fall prey to the world and settle for the things of this world.
1 Peter 2: 9-11
But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of Him who hath called you out of darkness into His marvellous light;
Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.
Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul;
Why is it that we must free ourselves from this world? Because we are a chosen, royal, holy, and peculiar people for God's possession. What does this all mean?

According to the miracles that have taken place in Argentina(1983-1990), this is the face of Jesus, the Holy Face of Jesus.
Gladys Herminia Quiroga de Motta, the seer of Our Lady of the Rosary of San Nicolas, stated that this picture of Jesus, is the face of Jesus.
This photo took place as a result of a miracle of the Eucharist.
It was during the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939) when havoc hit Spain, looters took to the streets stealing what was thought to be worth money.
Unfortunately, the Churches were broken into, so, when a priest safeguarded a ciborium containing the Consecrated Hosts by taking it home, he took a picture of it and this picture of Jesus materialized on the photo.
Ms Gladys began seeing the Blessed Virgin Mary on September 25th 1983 where Our Lady called for a “Sanctuary” to be built. As a result, miraculous healing began taking place as pilgrims flocked to Argentina. Conversions, the rapid growth of religious vocations flourished as hearts turned to God.
Our Lady warned, “Mankind is endangering the earth. Open your eyes and you will see that you are blinded pursuing illusions. Until now you have not realized this; you wanted to silence the voice of the Lord that is warning you. But now, my children, you are witnessing that God, in these days, is seeking you; go to encounter Him. Mind that the Lord is beside you. Praise be to Him.”. (Message 244)
Many times people ask "What does love got to do with it?"... When Jesus died on the cross for us he loved us so much to set the presidence that "Love has everything to do with it"! In marriage, in families, in children, in church, in ministry, in everyday life - Love is a key to the Kingdom of Christ. Remember we are just pilgrims passing through this is not our home. Our job is to follow Christ's example of the ultimate sacrifice. How will you Pay Christ's love Forward today and everyday?
1 Corinthians 13:4-8King James Version (KJV)
4 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;
7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
8 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
HEBREWS 11: 7-16
