But we are citizens of heaven, where the LORD JESUS CHRIST lives. And we are eagerly waiting for Him to return as our Saviour. He will take these weak mortal bodies of ours and change them into glorious bodies like His own, using the same mighty power that He will use to conquer everything, everywhere. PHILIPPIANS 3: 20 -21.
America requires that you surrender your U.S. citizenship if you choose to become a citizen of another country. There is, of course, one exception. No law prohibits us from being both citizens of the U.S. and citizens of heaven. This citizenship occurs when we are "born again" by faith in JESUS CHRIST.
Our natural citizenship is free to the native born, but it is not one we choose. Our citizenship in heaven is a free gift of GOD to those of us who invite GOD's Son to rule over our hearts in faith. Natural citizenship is physical and earthly; heavenly citizenship is spiritual and forever.
We are citizens of Heaven. We expect our LORD to return at any time. This day could be our last on Earth. We therefore seek to make life's major decisions in the light of eternity. Like Moses (Hebrews 11: 24 & 25) , we want to deny ourselves some of the pleasures of our momentary life to enjoy His approval forever.
Heaven is forever! Therefore," set your affections on things above," not on the things of this world (Collossians 3: 2) KJV.
Dear LORD, thank you for making me a citizen of Heaven freely by your grace. I do not deserve this privilege, but I thank You for it. I sincerely desire to live each day in conformity to Your will. Help me to avoid earthly minded decisions and "set (my) affection on things above." May I commit all my ways to You. Use my life as You see fit. In JESUS's name, Amen.......
Amen to Jesus. I will live my life each and everyday as if Jesus is coming in a second, minute,hour, day, week or month by speaking the truth, being pure and righteous, exhibiting peace to everyone and myself, being faithful, having faith in God, having the same mind as Christ and reading, meditating and speaking the word of God when Satan attacks me. I am just a visitor passing through the earth on my way to the supreme destination God has waiting for me in Jesus name. Amen!!!
Amen! Amen! Amen!
