Topic: Citizens Of Heaven.

Opening Scripture: Philippians 3;:20-“for our citizenship is in heaven, from which we eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ”.

A citizen is a native or a naturalized member of a state or nation who owes allegiance to it’s government and it’s entitled to it’s protection. Being a citizen of a place means you hail from that place and as a result you owe allegiance to that place. What do we mean by allegiance? It simply means the loyalty of a citizen to it’s government. You need to have respect for that place and acknowledge it’s government. This morning the bible tells us that we are citizens of heaven, it therefore means that we owe allegiance to the governance that is in Heaven because we hail from there. The governor in charge is God and we owe our loyalty to Him alone as a result of our citizenship.
We need to be mindful of what we do on earth, this is not where we belong. Many are sowing too much on earthly things rather than the heavenly. Only a foolish man would invest in what would at the end bring no profit, sadly many today are investing too much on things that concern the world and not heaven. Also being a citizen of a place entitles you the protection of that place.As citizens of heaven we are under Heaven’s covering so there’s no need to fear. We are under God’s care. As citizens we ought to represent where we come from, representing Heaven on earth is made possible by being born again and working in the miraculous path God has designed for us.
We are so blessed, as a reason of our citizenship, but we need to be born again, our loyalty must be steadfast. It’s my prayer that you would enjoy all God has for you as citizens of heaven in Jesus name amen.

Lesson for the day- we need to be more concerned with heavenly things than earthly, that’s where we come from.

Quote for the day- ‘I am a product of God’

Lifeforce prayer: Father, reveal yourself to me. Let me know you as I ought to, and let the knowledge of you give me victory all the days of my life. Father, keep me from evil and let your mighty hand uphold me that I may not fall away from your grace and mercy in Jesus’ Name. Amen!
