Citizens of Heaven (Phil. 3:20)

“For our citizenship is in Heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus,” (Phil. 3:20),We thank God that the Holy Spirit inspired (2 Timothy 3:16-17) the writers of the Bible to write in terms that we can understand. Most of us are familiar with the word “citizenship.” We understand that we are citizens of the United States of America. We are “Americans.” We further understand that this right has many responsibilities and duties as well as privileges. We are to obey the laws of the land.
The Apostle Paul”™s use of the word “citizenship” in Phil 3:20 has great importance for us in a spiritual way. Since we are “in Christ,” and therefore a Christian, we have certain responsibilities and privileges.
