In Philippians chapter 3, verses 17 through 21, Paul writes, “Dear brothers and sisters, pattern your lives after mine, and learn from those who follow our example. For I have told you often before, and I say it again with tears in my eyes, that there are many whose conduct shows that they are really enemies of the cross of Christ. 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. But we are citizens of heaven, where the Lord Jesus Christ lives. And we are eagerly waiting from him to return as our Savior. 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.”
These are very moving verses from Paul, and this is the second time in his letters that I have noticed the phrase ‘citizens of heaven’. Paul is telling us to live as though we are already in heaven, and to love others with the love that we will feel when we are connected with Jesus with no separation.
When I interacted with Christ using a legal substance he surrounded me in his holy light and I felt love and peace and bliss and tranquility like I had never felt before. Paul wants us to emulate this love, and to let go of earthly cares and distractions that can knock us off of the path of keeping our faith as our primary focus.
I love reading Paul’s writing because he always puts things in a way that helps me to conceptualize how to think and behave in a way that brings me closer to God and Jesus. I know that Jesus must have known about his skill as a writer before he even chose Paul for his ministry, and he knew that this talent would reach so many people, even thousands of years after his words were first written down.
