But our citizenship is in heaven ~Philippians 3:20
We all long for heaven where God is, but we have it in our power to be in heaven with Him right now–to be happy with Him at this very moment. But being happy with Him now means loving like He loves, helping like He helps, giving as He gives, serving as He serves, rescuing as He rescues, being with Him 24 hours a day–touching Him in His distressing disguise. ~Mother Teresa
WWJD? Reflection: Why wait until we die to enjoy heaven? By living out the life of Christ in our daily live, we bring heaven to earth. We bring the attributes of heaven–happiness, joy, peace, security and all else that is divine to those we encounter.
As we walk the steps of Jesus today, let’s remember that we’re ambassadors of a heavenly kingdom and the fragrance of that kingdom lingers behind us as evidence that heaven has come to earth twice–first in the person of Christ 2000 years ago–and again in the Body of Believers He has called to represent Him.
