“For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.”

Philippians 3:20

 

One definition of citizenship says this, “Citizenship is a relationship between an individual and a state to which the individual owes allegiance and in turn is entitled to its protection.” Even though our bodies are here on earth, our citizenship is in heaven. We belong in heaven. We belong to Christ. As we grow closer to Him, the more distasteful this world becomes. We are not to operate the way the world does. We are to walk as Christ did, with His Kingdom in the forefront. Walk like you belong to heaven, to your Lord and know that you also have the protection of the Almighty, all-powerful King of kings and His angel army today and for eternity.

Today's STRATEGY: Justice
Today's Focus: Protection for School

In Psalm, chapter 121, verses 5-8, it says:
The Lord watches over you—the Lord is your shade at your right hand; the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord will keep you from all harm—he will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.

Let's pray.
