YOU ARE A CITIZEN OF HEAVEN!
For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ (Philippians 3:20).
When a Christian is born again, automatically he becomes a citizen of heaven. At that point in time, your destiny is no longer tied to the logics and system of this world but to the heavenly Jerusalem. No wonder the Bible says in Ephesians 2:19, “Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God.” Of course, you are a citizen and a member of the household of God. Heaven becomes your final abode and destination.
Moreover, Jesus Christ told us plainly in the gospel that a Christian is not of this world; he is from above where He is seated at the right Hand of the Father. That is the reason why the Bible tells us, “But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels” (Hebrews 12:22). Even though you are here physically, you are not a part of the world but a citizen of Mount Zion, the heavenly Jerusalem which is the city of God Almighty.
In fact, Mount Zion is the beautiful city of God where there is no failure, lack, sickness, sorrow, pain, economic recession, war, militancy, terrorism, earthquake, death, etc. That is why the Bible says in Revelation 22:23, “The city had no need of the sun or the moon to shine in it, for the glory of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light.” Of course, a Christian is a citizen of the heavenly Jerusalem which is Mount Zion, the holy city of God. A Christian should take note of the fact that he is a citizen of Mount Zion, the heavenly Jerusalem.
Daily Tip: A Christian is never a citizen of this world which is temporary but a citizen of Mount Zion, the heavenly Jerusalem and the city of God which is eternal and everlasting. Shalom!
Golden Text: If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore, the world hates you (John 15:19).
