As believers, we live with a dual attitude. We live in a corporeal world with real needs and desires. We are also citizens of heaven with a future in eternity. Our hearts are divided between what we see and what we don’t see. Our attention must be evenly balanced. Too much on one side will harm the other.
Salvation is all about knowing that when we die, we will go to heaven. That is a hope that keeps us looking up with longing and expectation. We must never lose sight of the reward being prepared for us. But if all we do it wait to die to be with the Lord, then we miss out on the joys that we’re meant to have now.
On earth as it is in heaven. Jesus made it very clear that we can believe for the things of heaven today. The blessings of God are ours in abundance. We are meant to live in destiny today, enjoying the life we’ve been given. But if we focus too much on our life here, we lose track of our heavenly calling.
We walk a fine line between enjoying our lives and living with hope. We have dual citizenship until the day we release one for the other.
