Today in Sunday School we were talking about being citizens of Heaven. What does that mean and how does that effect our lives now.
It made me think about when people move. You buy a new home. Maybe you are building a new home. You start by looking for something that suits your needs. To do that you have to look at your life style. Once you found the house, you have to get things ready for the big move. You have to put pack. In doing that you need to toss some things out and buy some things new. You may have to paint and clean. If you are buying a home owned by someone you may have to fix something that is broken or doesn't work the way it should. You spend hours and days getting ready to move.
That is just what we should be doing while here on earth. Getting ready to move. Move to our home in heaven. We need to start looking at our life style, do we need to change? We need to go though the things in our lives. We need to toss some of the bad things and improve on other areas in our lives. We need to take order of our lives. You want to clean out your life so you have a pure life on the day you enter your earthly home. You may have broken areas in your life but with Christ you are healed. This won't happen over night. This may take years. You won't be ready to move till God calls you.
Here is another thing you do when you move. That is tell your friends and family. You let them know your new address. Well we need to tell others about God and how they too can move in with you.
