Embrace Your Citizenship

“For here we do not have an enduring city, but we are looking for the city that is to come.” (Hebrews 13:14)

“For our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ.” (Philippians 3:20)

If you feel unsettled at times and wonder where you fit into this world, this may be God’s way of telling you not to become too comfortable down here. This unsettledness comes because we know that this world, in its present form, is passing away! We also know that those who do the will of God will live forever. The brevity of this life sends us a message: Don’t fall in love with this world because we are just passing through.

I love the fact that our citizenship is in heaven! Our hearts should be set on pilgrimage. We are strangers in an alien world. We do not have an enduring city. The more we see of this dysfunctional world, the more we need to seek the world to come. Our citizenship may be in heaven, but in the meantime, we are ambassadors for Christ by reaching out to a lost and dying world.

In his Word, God has revealed to us what is happening in this world. The whole earth is under the sway of the evil one, and the prince of the power of the air is at work in the sons of disobedience worldwide. The Bible also tells us that our weapons of warfare are not carnal, but mighty in God to tear down strongholds that exalt themselves. Our warfare is against principalities, powers, rulers of darkness of this present age, and rulers of wickedness in the heavenly spheres. We are engaged in warfare! In the meantime, we are eagerly waiting for the return of the Lord Jesus Christ. He is coming again, and according to the Bible it is going to happen soon!
