citizens of heaven

 

Since my childhood I had been struggling with my identity and where I belonged. German? Filipina? or both? Then I moved to my husband’s home country and totally lost myself. My parents banned me from their life. Was I an orphan now? It was in 2019 when Jesus Christ saved me and made me a new creation. He also revealed to whom and where I belonged – I am a child of God and Christ lives in me. I’m a citizen of heaven. I thank and praise God for giving me my true identity in Christ.

If you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you are a child of God and receive a new identity in Christ. Your new home will be heaven, even while you are still on earth. Isn’t that wonderful?

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. ~ 2 Corinthians 5:17

I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. ~ Galatians 2:20

But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, ~ John 1:12

For in Christ Jesus you are all sons of God, through faith. ~ Galatians 3:26

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
