Like Laurent Clerc who left his native land and became a sojourner in a foreign land, we have been called by God to sojourn now in these temporary fleshly bodies, these tabernacles to be Christ's ambassadors. We've been called for a purpose to leave our native land of Satan's society and uplift others with God's teachings and encourage them with our example of Christ living in us (2010 Feast of Tabernacles sermon from Panama City Beach, Florida).
