Is Your Citizenship in Heaven?

Transcript

Philippians 3:18-21 for many walk, of whom I often told you and now tell you even weeping that they are enemies of the cross of Christ whose end is destruction whose god is their appetite and whose glory is in their shame who set their minds on earthly things for our citizenship is in heaven from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior the Lord Jesus Christ who will transform the body of our humble state into conformity with the body of His glory by the exertion of the power that He has even to subject all things to Himself so is your citizenship in heaven everyone of us of course are probably citizens of an earthly nation here on planet earth but really what Paul is talking about is in your mind set you need to think of your citizenship as in heaven we need to take an eternal view of life everyday a lot of times people don’t think that eternal life starts until they die do you know you’re in eternal life right now when you pass away your body will return to the dust of the earth but your spirit and soul just continue right on into eternity you’re in eternal life right now so what we want to do is make sure everyday counts let our citizenship be in heaven regarding business and fiances I encourage you to become a financial eunuch what does that mean? if you think about eunuchs in past history these were men who were castrated why so that they had no sexual desire it qualified them to work around the king’s harem the king didn’t want people that might touch one of those women for his own personal desire so he only employed men that had no desire after these women for themselves what is a financial eunuch a person that has allowed God to deal with his heart in such a way that he’s able to handle a business handle money and resources on behalf of the King not for himself so I encourage you in business say Lord would you qualify me to be a financial eunuch determine your motive for why you’re doing what you’re doing am I doing it, am I using God to enrich myself or am I fulfilling a purpose that God has given me for His glory for His honor who owns the enterprise that I might be a part of let God be the owner and you be the steward or the manager that’s a powerful place to walk and then Paul says there are many who are enemies of the cross of Christ don’t be one of those as I thought about that it doesn’t say they’re enemies of Christ they like Jesus they’re enemies of the cross of Christ what’s the cross of Christ that’s dying to self denying yourself living for the sake of the kingdom for the glory of God for the sake of blessing other people there are many people who love Jesus they love to go to church they love to worship, Hallelujah but they’re not willing to deny themselves in any area they are enemies of the cross embrace the cross in your life let God circumcise your heart let God deal with your motives that you could live 100% for Him make your activity today count not just for this life but for all eternity how do you do that by embracing the cross and letting your citizenship be in heaven I just pray for you today that there would be a new revelation of your citizenship in heaven that’s really… you’re an ambassador and a citizen of the Kingdom of heaven seconded perhaps to a business or a company here on planet earth that you are destined to work for during this period of time but truly you work for the King you are a citizen of the kingdom of heaven here on planet earth to bring heaven to earth to bring supernatural power revelation, life, eternal life to the people around you today I pray that for you that you would walk in that today bringing His glory His honor His kingdom into your daily life and your place of business your family the place where you will be today I pray that for you that you would walk as a citizen of heaven today in the mighty name of Yeshua Amen
