Our true citizenship

I’ve been doing the M’Cheyne one-year Bible reading plan recently. It’s pretty cool. This passage was part of yesterday’s reading, and I think it bears on some of what I was feeling yesterday:

But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself.

Philippians 3:20-21 (ESV)

I guess as children of God we should not be surprised when we feel like we just don’t quite “fit” here. We are truly strangers and aliens.

In fact, it’s better if we don’t get too comfortable. Our real country calls us, and one day we will repatriate it, leaving all this behind.
