“For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ,” Philippians 3:20
Too many of us think of this world as a permanent and stable environment. We want to plant roots, buy houses and property, collect things (mostly junk), and become attached to our homes and cities. If God were to call you tomorrow, would you be able to leave it all behind, take up your cross, and follow Him? Could you go into the mission field? If you have multiple investment properties, could you give one to a homeless family? Give your second car to a single mom who is struggling to make ends meet? Test yourself...practice giving something away and see if it's a struggle. I'm not talking about the clothes and shoes in your closet that you haven't worn in ages. I'm talking about something you value. This world is not your home. You're presence here is nothing more than on a long visit. Don't become too attached to this world and the things in it. Don't apply for citizenship here. Your home is in heaven, and your job is to win as many souls as possible and bring them with you.
