CITIZENS OF ANOTHER PLACE


Philippians 3:20


"But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly
await a Saviour from there, the Lord Jesus Christ."
NIV


"For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also
we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ." KJV


Yes we live in a different world. And sometimes we
forget that this world is neither our home nor our
destination. We are waiting here for our Lord. It is
what we do here while we wait and what our attitude
is that makes the difference between a joyful heart or
a defeated, heavy heart.


Heavenly Father, forgive us when we get caught up
in the things going on around us in this world. Help
us to remember and be thankful that we are not
citizens of this world, but citizens of your kingdom.
We ask in Jesus' name, Amen.

I was thinking about this early this morning. I struggle sometimes with the feeling that I don't "belong". Suddenly, I realized: I DON"T belong to this world. I'm not HOME yet!
