Verse of the Day: Philippians 3:20-21
“But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself.” – Philippians 3:20-21
As Christians, we may be living down here, however, this is not where our citizenship is. Jesus put it like this, “I have given them Your word; and the world has hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.” John 17:14 The world is against the truth and therefore is against us and our belief.
There is coming a time in the future whereby we will go to our new home. It is the place where God dwells, and we will no longer have to deal with the world. So, stand strong and uncompromising. Do not let anyone cause you to be embarrassed or start to question your beliefs. We are here for a time and then we go home. Look ahead at this time and understand that things may be tough now, but a glorious eternal future lies ahead. Rejoice in this.
