Our Citizenship Is in Heaven

January 31, 2020


Our Citizenship Is in Heaven

We can get so carried away  with all the stuff  that is happening  these days.      There is corruption  in every country’s politics,  the use of drugs  is becoming more rampant,  it’s dog-eat-dog  in the corporate setting,  people are losing their homes and jobs,  thievery is commonplace…….      All that  isn’t even the beginning  of things  that just aren’t right.

Try as we might,  we cannot change the world.      The hearts of the people  are hard as steel  and as brazen as prostitutes.      They laugh  and take pleasure  in their outlandishness — always trying  to out-do another  in their boldness  to shock everyone.      In their loneliness,  they cry for attention.      In their greed,  they don’t care  who they hurt  to get what they want.      In their seething hatred,  they despise everything good  and gentle.      They are lost  and refuse to admit it,  covering up their confusion  with more lies.

As the world turns…….      As the stomach churns…….      These people have no rest or peace.

They spend all their time and energy  fighting against their Maker  and Savior — and have no clue  where they will end up.      But,  God’s children  are different.      We can know  where we are headed.      We didn’t bring anything  into this world,  and we won’t  take anything out  when we die.      This world  is not our home.      We are just  on our way  to our home  in heaven.      As Paul testifies  in Philippians 3:20,

Our citizenship  is in heaven,  from which also  we eagerly wait  for a Savior,  the Lord Jesus Christ.

There is nothing  in this world  that is more valuable  than knowing our Savior — abiding  in Him  and His word — and taking up our cross  and following Him.      Our travels here  are relatively short  compared to  eternity in heaven.

May we always  look to our Lord Jesus Christ  for help along our way,  and say,  “Hallelujah!      Lord,  thank You for making a home  for us  in heaven.”
