Getting My Mind Right For 2018

W Philippians 3:20 New International Version (NIV)

But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ,

O The whole chapter of Philippians 3 is AWESOME, but verse 20 is my focus for this post!

BUT our citizenship is in heaven! That portion of scripture in and of itself is very POWERFUL!

I focus every minute of the day on the “here” and “now”. What would my life look like if I focused on where my citizenship is?

My citizenship is not here in the United States—my citizenship is in heaven! My eternal home! My final destination!

What a blessed revelation!

R For 2018, I challenge myself to keep my mind thinking about how to prepare for my eternal home.

Self-Reflection

Question: What do citizens of heaven look like? Talk Like? Behave like? Think like? Walk like?

Answer: Citizens of heaven:

Look– happy, smiling, confident, etc. (the joy of the Lord is your strength—Nehemiah 8:10)

Talk– positive (let no unwholesome talk come out of your mouths—Ephesians 4:29)

Behave– Christ-like (walk in love—Ephesians 5:2)

Think– constantly about things that are good (true, noble, right, pure, lovely, and admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things—Philippians 4:8)

Walk– with their heads held high (be of good cheer: Jesus has overcome the world—John 16:33)

It is one thing to know the Word. And it is another to do the Word. As a daily reminder of keeping my focus, I decided to print this entry and post it in my home where I can see it daily. This is my goal for 2018. Fellow believers, I pray that you will have similar goals for 2018 (and the years to come) because this world is not our home! We are just passing through, my friends!

D Dear God,

Thank You for an AWESOME Word today! Thank You for choosing me to be a part of Your Kingdom! I realize there is nothing special that I did to earn my citizenship in heaven—Jesus, You paid it all on the cross. I give glory to Your name!

Help me to live every second, every moment of my life with a Kingdom mindset! I desire: every thought, every decision, and every action that involves me to be centered on my eternal home with You! To God be the Glory! I love You, Father.

In Jesus’ name,

Amen
