You Are...A Citizen Of Heaven

Working in tandem with this month's "I Am The Resurrection" statement, April's "You Are" verses take a look at the truth that as a Christian, you are a citizen of Heaven!

What an amazing fact we can rejoice in, in addition to Christ's resurrection! The Christian has so much to look forward to and it certainly makes the charms of this world look very dim indeed. Praises to the Risen King who has gone before us to prepare a place for us!

May our focus be on eternal things this week and sharing the Gospel with those who don't have the promise of Heaven yet.
Jesus said, “I Am The Resurrection…He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live.”
Therefore as a Christian, You Are A Citizen Of Heaven.

Philippians 3:20
“For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ.”

"How the spirit yearns for Home, how eagerly we wait.
How we look toward the day we see that Pearly Gate!
Our Saviour left the promise, “I’ll prepare a place for you”
And so we cling not to this world, we’re simply passing through.

For now we must redeem the time and heed His every call,
For Jesus made provision and there’s room enough for all!
May we seek to share this wondrous gift that we’ve been given,
O’ child of God, rejoice for you’re a Citizen of Heaven!"

John 14:2
“In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.”

“My home is in heaven. I’m just passing through this world.”
