|But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, |
|For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: |
|For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ; |
|Philippians 3:20 |
Christians need to remember that though we are in this world we are not of this world; our ultimate citizenship is in heaven. The eager desire of Christians is not earthly things, but a heavenly Person, the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ (Rom. 8:19-25).
