But our citizenship is in Heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, who, by the power that enables Him to bring everything under His control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like His glorious body. Philippians 3:20-21
As TRUE BELIEVERS, our TRUE CITIZENSHIP is in HEAVEN. And one day SOON, we will be transported there, by the Lord Jesus Christ, our SAVIOR and LORD, who, by the POWER of God to bring EVERYTHING under His control, will TRANSFORM our LOWLY BODIES to be LIKE His GLORIOUS BODY. One that is WITHOUT sin, and physical defects. One that is PERFECT in EVERY way. And so we WAIT EAGERLY for His return.
In the meantime, what should we be doing, until He returns? The Apostle Paul tells us in verses thirteen through fourteen; …”One thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and STRAINING TOWARD what is AHEAD, I press on toward the goal to win the PRIZE for which God has called me Heavenward in Christ Jesus.” We SHOULD LIVE up to that which we have already attained. In other words, DON’T QUIT! KEEP on KEEPING ON, pressing towards the goal that God has for you, and SERVE Him with JOY and PERSEVERANCE! Be STEADFAST in your SERVICE to Him, and DO ALL you can to bring others to the CROSS of CHRIST, before it’s too late.
Be DILIGENT in the WORK of your SERVICE. KNOWING that ONE DAY, Jesus Christ will RETURN to RAPTURE His Church, and will, by His own POWER TRANSFORM our LOWLY BODIES to by LIKE His GLORIOUS BODY, fit for HEAVEN. Are you EAGERLY WAITING for His RETURN?
If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to GOD, then your CITIZENSHIP is NOT in Heaven, but you’re DESTINED to LIVE out your ETERNITY in Hell, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY of ESCAPE. Time is running out! In order for you to become a citizen of Heaven, you MUST BE WILLING to TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and to TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART. BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in HEAVEN, making intercession for you, before God. Then CONFESS your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS. And ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and become a CITIZEN of HEAVEN, who is EAGERLY WAITING for the RETURN of the SAVIOR, JESUS CHRIST. And SERVE Him, until He RETURNS. Do this NOW while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
