YOUR CITIZENSHIP IS IN HEAVEN!
For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ (Philippians 3:20).
A Christian’s citizenship is in heaven because he had been born again. When you are born again, you are no longer a citizen of this world but a citizen of Zion, the heavenly Jerusalem. In the opening text, the Bible tells us that our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that his citizenship is not in this world but in Zion, the heavenly Jerusalem which is the holy city of God. A Christian is from above where Jesus Christ is seated over principalities and powers forever.
Whoever that is born again is born into Zion, the holy city of God. That is why a Christian should never conform to the standard of this world. No wonder the Bible says in Psalm 87:5, “And of Zion it will be said, ‘This one and that one were born in her; and the Most High Himself shall establish her.” Therefore, a Christian was born and at the same time established into Zion, the holy city of God. God has established you in Zion, His own city of heavenly Jerusalem. Indeed, a Christian’s citizenship is in heaven, the Zion and holy city of God forever.
God has lifted you above principalities and powers to sit with Jesus Christ. A Christian should be bold and confident like a lion (Proverbs 28:1). He is not expected to live in fear no matter the challenges of life. That is the reason why the Bible says in Ephesians 2:6, “And raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus.” In fact, through Jesus Christ a Christian was indeed elevated into the realm of the divinity to reign with God. God has given a Christian authority in Christ Jesus in order to exercise dominion in life forever.
Daily Tip: Every Christian is a citizen of Zion, the heavenly Jerusalem, and the holy city of God forever. Shalom!
