Read Philippians 3:18-21 NLT

18 For I have told you often before, and I say it again with tears in my eyes, that there are many whose conduct shows they are really enemies of the cross of Christ. 19 They are headed for destruction. Their god is their appetite, they brag about shameful things, and they think only about this life here on earth. 20 But we are citizens of heaven, where the Lord Jesus Christ lives. And we are eagerly waiting for him to return as our Savior. 21 He will take our weak mortal bodies and change them into glorious bodies like his own, using the same power with which he will bring everything under his control.

Lord, today I am thankful for the reminder of whose I am and where I belong. Although my body is here on the earth for a time, my true home as a citizen of heaven is with You. I pray that until the time You call me to Your side, that You would help me to focus on You and the things of heaven that last. Help me to discern how You would have me live this life as a representative of heaven. Let Your power be shown in the way You have changed me each and every day, until the fullness of that power and Your glory can be shown throughout the heavens and the earth. Amen.
