Little Heaven

10 Sep

Little Heaven…

Immigrants to America often bring their country with them. Our cities are filled with enclaves of distant lands: “Little Italy,” “Chinatown,” “Little Havana.”

Walking through these neighborhoods you hear the language, smell the aromas, see the clothing, and hear the music of foreign lands. In Philippians 3:20, 21 it is written “.. our citizenship is in Heaven…”

Though we live in this world, we don’t belong to it. We are immigrants here, but our hearts are in our homeland… heaven. As the immigrants formed little enclaves, so we are to form little enclaves of Heaven here on earth… our homes… our marriages… our walks… our congregations… are all to be “Little Heavens.”

People ought to hear us speak the language of Heaven, smell the fragrance of Heaven, see the ways of Heaven, and hear the worship of Heaven. You are of Heaven, and while you live on earth, you are called to manifest to this planet, the ways of Heaven.

Make your life a “Heaven Town.” So much so, that all those who come near it will know there exists a better place, a heavenly place… your homeland.

But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body. Philippians 3:20-21

Today, as you go through your day on earth, seek to live your life as a citizen of “little Heaven.”

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,
