Actress Shares Perfect, Much-Needed Reminder For Christians Following Capitol Riots

Actress Patricia Heaton shared an important reminder for Christians and all those who claim to follow Christ following a dramatic first week of 2021.

Her reminder was brief, yet timely, and could change the way Christians think and act in the aftermath of a tumultuous 2020 and an already-rocky new year.

The Christian home is not of this world. 

Referencing the important words Jesus spoke to his disciples (in John 14:3), Heaton said in a tweet that it is OK for “a common-sense person” to not feel like they do not have a home in this world. And, she continued: “If you’re a Christian, you know you were never meant to.”

As Faithwire reports, thousands of people responded to the post expressing thanks for the reminder. There was at least one user, however, that said the comment “feels escapist.”

“We are meant to serve Christ while we are here,” Heaton answered back.

And, from Faithwire:

Another commenter responded to Heaton, writing, “Exactly how I feel. Both sides are yelling, ‘wake up,’ while there are blind spots on both sides. I’m a moderate conservative [and] get called names [because] of that. That’s OK. I’m a believer in Christ first [and] follow Him. This world is not my home, so I’ll love Him [and] others till I get there.”

“Exactly,” Heaton tweeted back.

Someone else told the celebrity that she “really needed to hear” Heaton’s encouragement. She went on to reference the apostle Paul’s words in Romans 12, writing, “We are told not to conform to the patterns of this world but to be transformed by the renewing of our (own) mind. It’s very hard to get caught up with it all. It’s incredibly heavy.”
