Dearly beloved brethren, the saints in the old testament and believers in the new testament and even in our contemporary times, lived with consciousness of the fact that, they were strangers and pilgrims on this side of heaven and were transiting to their home in eternity with God. See what the scriptures says about them.
Abraham.
Genesis 23:4 I am a stranger and a sojourner with you: give me a possession of a buryingplace with you, that I may bury my dead out of my sight.
Jacob.
Genesis 47:9 And Jacob said unto Pharaoh, The days of the years of my pilgrimage are an hundred and thirty years: few and evil have the days of the years of my life been, and have not attained unto the days of the years of the life of my fathers in the days of their pilgrimage.
King David and his people.
1Ch 29:14 — 1Ch 29:15 But who am I, and what is my people, that we should be able to offer so willingly after this sort? for all things come of thee, and of thine own have we given thee. For we are strangers before thee, and sojourners, as were all our fathers: our days on the earth are as a shadow, and there is none abiding.
Psalms 39:12 Hear my prayer, O LORD, and give ear unto my cry; hold not thy peace at my tears: for I am a stranger with thee, and a sojourner, as all my fathers were.
Psalms 119:19 I am a stranger in the earth: hide not thy commandments from me.
Psalms 119:54 Thy statutes have been my songs in the house of my pilgrimage.
Thy statutes have been my songs in the house of my pilgrimage [ Your decrees are the theme of my song wherever I lodge ] – Psalms 119:54
The patriarchs .

Hebrews 11:13 -16 These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth. For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country. And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned. But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.

Bible days believers.
1 Peter 1:17 And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man’s work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear:
1 Peter 2:11 Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul;

 

Beloved, because of this consciousness, they were always desirous of God, to reveal to them, the prerequisites of living with Him in eternity.

Psa 15:1 — Psa 15:5 LORD, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill? He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart. He that backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbour, nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour. In whose eyes a vile person is contemned; but he honoureth them that fear the LORD. He that sweareth to his own hurt, and changeth not. He that putteth not out his money to usury, nor taketh reward against the innocent.He that doeth these things shall never be moved.
Psa 24:3 — Psa 24:4 Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place? He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.

Having discovered what they needed to do, they determindly and religiously as wise people applied their hearts to doing them. See their attitude.

1. They were always considering their later end.
Deuteronomy 32:29 O that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end!
2. They applied their hearts to wisdom.
Psalms 90:12 So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.
3. They sought always to place emphasis on eternal things. Taken all their decisions from the perspective of their eternal well being.
Col 3:1 — Col 3:4 If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

Beloved, because you also have the same goal, to live with God in eternity. This laudable goal , the Lord shall help you in particular to attain it in Jesus name.

So like Abraham, Jacob, king David and believers of all ages especially you, be determined to do what they did and you also shall end up, where they are, now in Jesus name.
The good Lord shall help you in particular in Jesus name.
