Today’s Promise

My Citizenship is in Heaven

Philippians 3:20

Our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ.

A Citizen of Heaven

As a Christian, you don’t have to “hope” you will go to heaven when you die. If you have put your faith in Christ, you know where you will spend eternity.

You are a citizen of heaven. Not when you die, but right now. When you came to Christ, your citizenship transferred from the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of heaven.

Nothing can keep you from your eternal home with Christ. 

Here are six things God tells us about your eternal home.

  1. Your every tear will be dried, and every hurt healed.
  2. You will always be in the presence of God.
  3. When you get to heaven, you will receive a new and eternal body that will never get sick, never experience pain, and never grow old.
  4. There is no death, and you will live forever.
  5. You will see Jesus and God the Father face to face.
  6. You will live in a special place created just for you by Jesus.

These six truths hardly scratch the surface of all the incredible things you will experience in heaven. Heaven is filled with more joy than you can possibly imagine.

Your Citizenship is Sealed

With your citizenship sealed in heaven, this world is no longer your priority. Your life is just a passing moment before you enter eternity in heaven.

Today, you live differently because you know heaven is your home. You live like a tourist in this world. You are just passing through. Your goals and priorities are different because you know this is not your true home.

You have a new spiritual family, a new priority in life, and a new hope because you are a citizen of heaven.

There is no fear of death because you know when you close your eyes to this world, you will open them in heaven with Jesus.

Because heaven is your home, you can look with anticipation for the return of the Lord Jesus.

Look at that promise again.

Our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ. – Philippians 3:20

Make these confessions.

  • Right now, I am a citizen of heaven.
  • I know that when I die, I will spend eternity in heaven.
  • I am no longer at home in this world.
  • I look forward to the return of Christ.
  • I live with my eyes on heaven knowing this world is not my home.

In Jesus name

There is no fear of death when you know your citizenship in heaven has been sealed by the blood of Christ. 

On a personal note:

    Pastor Billy,
    I prayed that the surgeon, anesthesiologist, other doctors, nurses and all medical personnel will be alert in mind and that God would guide their work. May there be no infection. May God surround you with people to care for you and that you will have a quick and complete recovery.
    Hope this also leads to a side gig as your local weather forecaster!
    Thank you Pastor Billy for the strong and hope filled promises that are in my inbox every morning! They have enriched my relationship with the Lord.
