Philippians 3:20 (NKJV) For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ,
When we are born again, we are given a new nature in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We are given a new life-style in which we no longer desire the things that our old nature did. Rather, we now desire the things of God. For we are children of God, and our citizenship is in heaven. As children of God, we are in this world but we are not of this world. We belong to Christ. And so, we are to live a life for Christ. We are to be more like Christ. We are to be transformed by the transformation power of the Holy Spirit of God into the likeness of Christ. We are to act as citizens of heaven and ambassadors of Christ. We are to represent Christ and His message of salvation upon this earth today, because “our citizenship is in heaven.” And every believer ought to eagerly wait for the return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He is our blessed Hope. Jesus is coming again to take all who belong to Him out of this world before the Tribulation. “For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him” (1 Thessalonians 5:9-10 NKJV). We need to be ready for Christ’s return. And while we are joyfully waiting for Christ’s return, we are to be productive Christians, representing Christ and His message of salvation.
God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
