Where are you from?

For I have told you often before, and I say it again with tears in my eyes, that there are many whose conduct shows they are really enemies of the cross of Christ. They are headed for destruction. Their god is their appetite, they brag about shameful things, and they think only about this life here on earth. 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 3:18-20 NLT)

It is a fact that you can just about tell where someone is from by the way they talk, the way they dress, or how they drive on the highway. A lot of times we can tell who the auburn (blah) and Alabama fans are because they wear the colors and logos proud daily. It's no lie that we are recognizable by our lifestyle, actions, and appearance. 

So if the Bible tells us that we are citizens of Heaven (now not later) then I ask this, do we talk like a citizen of Heaven do we act like a citizen of Heaven? Does our lifestyle reflect a citizen of Heaven? When people look at you or talk to you can they say, that truly is a citizen of Heaven?   

The Bible is our citizenship manual. Let's resolve to dig in deep and find out how citizens of Heaven should live and let's live it. 

After all we are representing it here everyday.
