But Our Citizenship is in Heaven

“But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, who, by the power that enables Him to bring everything under His control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like His glorious body.” ~Philippians 3:20-21

This verse contains my favorite Greek word in the Bible - apekdechomai. English translates as to ‘wait for eagerly’. BORING! I eagerly wait for dessert. But the meaning that the Greek stacks into this word is ‘ever-increasing anticipation and earnest expectation’ (picture a pup sitting for a piece of bacon). Excitement like an electric current running through your body, hair standing on end, feelings bubbling up inside so that you can hardly contain it. THAT is how we are waiting for Jesus to come again!

Have you ever met anyone who has become a citizen of the United States of America? I’ve known several and they absolutely GLOW with a sense of honor - their thankfulness is tangible. They have pride in their new country and hopeful excitement fills them. I think of that when I read that our citizenship is in heaven. It’s our home!

And to top it all off, we will get a new body that is incorruptible and non-perishable! Our earth-suits are tired old things that have an expiration date. But Jesus gave us a preview of what to expect when He appeared after His resurrection - He said, “feel me - I am solid” yet He could pass through the walls. He ate food and enjoyed talking with friends and family. Campfire on the beach! And pure irresistible love. Ahhh!



Have a blessed day!
