Day Twenty Nine

But we are citizens of heaven, where the Lord Jesus Christ lives. And we are eagerly waiting for him to return as our Savior. Philippians 3:20
 

Above my bed I have a flag hanging that says "citizen". It was the first and only thing I've won off of instagram so far. When I received this beautiful flag in the mail the company; White Flag, sent a card that read this scripture explaining that the flag was inspired by this promise.

What if we lived with a perspective that this life is temporary? That life here on earth is not all there is? That we actually have a secure promise; one day we will be together with Christ, no longer experiencing the suffering here on earth. Would we live differently? Would we look to please God instead man more intentionally? Would we see the things here on earth as just add on as we journey onward to our true home; Heaven.

May Christ's finished work remind us of the hope we have and let it stir us up to rely on the Holy Spirit and be intentional with the short amount of time we have for His glory alone.
