"Only let your manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ..." Philippians 1:27
In America, it's not frequent to be taught that the way we choose to live our life-our lifestyle-is to line up and be worthy of what we believe as Christians. We will look like strangers and pilgrims on earth and different than the society we live in. "Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul..." 1 Peter 2:11
Labour to travel through the world like a child of God and heir to glory. Let men be able to trace a family likeness between you and Him that begat you. Live a heavenly life. Seek things that are above.
Do not seem to be building your nest below. Behave like a man who seeks a city out of sight, whose citizenship is in heaven, and who would be content with many hardships till he gets home." J.C. Ryle
