My Citizenship
Philippians 3

Text: For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. Philippians 3:20

Learn and Apply: Citizenship is a really big deal for many people, especially because there is some prestige with being a citizen of a particular country. People who desire the citizenship of another country are often willing to pay a great price for it. Thankfully, Jesus has paid the price for us. He has bought us our citizenship, we no longer need to pay for it – Christ has done it all.

How then should we behave on earth?
We should behave as citizens of Heaven, we must not make our belly our gods, or earthly treasures our hope. But must with all humility represent the country we belong to, and protect the interests of our brethren who also are citizens of that beautiful country, the New Jerusalem, the home of God, that city of gold.

May God help us to remember where we come from, and where our real citizenship is, in Jesus name.

Pray:
Thank you Father for reminding me of my heavenly citizenship, and thank you for making me an ambassador for Christ. Help me to protect the interests of the kingdom always in Jesus name.
