Above all, you must live as citizens of heaven, conducting yourselves in a manner worthy of the Good News about Christ.
Philippians 1:27 (NLT)
It is easy to get so involved in the minutia of this life that we forget that we have been born again into a new family. We forget that we have a whole new existence. We are now citizens of Heaven and that should affect everything we do here. Paul tells us that above everything else we must live as people of Heaven. This should change the way we look at this world, the way we interpret events, the way we live out our faith. Paul says that it should result in living a life that is worthy of Christ’s grace and mercy toward us. Today, rejoice! You are a child of God and a citizen of His Kingdom! Let this reality shape the way you think and act.
Dear Father, thank You for making me a citizen of Heaven. I am Your servant and pledge my allegiance to You and Your Kingdom here on earth. Help me live in a manner worthy of this Good News. In Jesus’ name.
