..But Our Citizenship Is In Heaven

Thinking about this mind- blowing truth today:

“…But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ…” (Phil 3:20-)

Paul is talking about the present, the here and now. The believer seems to be, then, in a very real sense, the intersection of heaven and earth. They straddle the line between two worlds. “They are not yet what they already are,” (Pieper) and they live in a place where they’ve not yet been. From that place we await our Savior.

I hope this stuff affects our day to day.
