Your Citizenship

Do you live, think, eat, and breath like your citizenship sits in this place?

As I prepared the verse graphic below (which, by the way, is free to print for personal or ministry use–just right mouse click) I stopped to consider the question.

What if we lived, TRULY LIVED, as though our citizenship sat solidly in heaven? Would that change how we interact with others? The words we offer? How we pray? What we believe about others and ourself? The possibilities we imagine?

Sometimes I house a small view. I limit God–what He can do in and through me. And goodness, what He has already completed and promised.

I want a bigger view–to believe more. Maybe that’s why God gave me the word “believe” this year–even though I’m not a “one-word” kind of girl!

What if we BELIEVE and operate daily with assurance our citizenship sits in heaven?

Can you imagine? Oooooweeeeeee!

If you’re born again, that’s where your citizenship sits. In heaven. Period.

  1. I love this verse about our citizenship. Just last night, I got to attend a prescreening of the new animated The Pilgrim’s Progress, which I’ve never read. (Have you???) Watching the film was a great reminder that we are never alone on our journey, AND that we are headed to our heavenly home.

    1. Pilgrim’s Progress is one of my favorite books, and I made sure our children received the children’s version as well. Glad you got to preview the movie, Betsy. I have had that opportunity yet.
