Many reading this when asked where you are a citizen of would reply
by saying the country they live in currently. As a believer the place
on earth we live is only a temporary home for us. We are here as
ambassadors or representatives for Christ.
Think about the job of an ambassador. It is to represent his or her
country in an excellent manner in a foreign country. Are you a good
ambassador for Jesus where He has placed you on His earth? Are the
things you do daily bringing glory to His name or embarrassment?
Philippians 3:20(NIV) says 'But our citizenship is in heaven and we
eagerly await a Savior from there.' Ephesians 2:19(NIV) also says
'Consequently you are no longer foreigners and aliens but fellow
citizens with God's people and members of God's household.' Isn't
that comforting to know?
Remember if your name the name of Jesus and claim to be His follower
your job is to shine the light of Jesus in the world around you. Go
out now and brighten the world around you. Where others are down help
lift them up. Remember in Philippians 4:13(NIV) it says ' I can do all
things through Christ who gives me strength.'
PRAYER: Lord I take my job seriously as a representative of the
heavenly kingdom. Forgive me when I forget that I am representing you
and start to "act up" and do not shine your light. Every day I need
your help. I thank you for being there for me. In Jesus' name. Amen.
