Citizens of Heaven-Philippians 3:20

July 11, 2009

What is Meant By Our Being Citizens of Heaven?

1- We are under heaven’s government.

Jesus is our King and He reigns in our hearts.

Our daily prayer is, ‘Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.’

The decrees of the King we are to obey.

2- We share heavenly honors.

We are children of God.

The righteousness of Jesus has been imputed within our spirit.

We have angels as servants.

We have saints for our companions.

We have Christ Jesus for our Brother.

We have God as our “Abba Father”.

We possess the crown of immortality.

Our names are recorded in heaven’s ‘Book of Life’.

3. We have the right of heirs to all the property of heaven.

There is nothing in heaven that does not belong to us; the gates of pearl, the streets of gold, the mansions of Zion, the river of life, the twelve fruits of the trees.

Things present, or things to come, all are ours.

As we look and long for His appearing let our walk and actions be by faith and devotion to Jesus,conforming to His image!
