"Citizens of Heaven" (Philippians 3:20–21)

Pastor Cameron Jungels

Eastside Baptist Church

Sunday AM, March 29, 2020

Philippians 3:20–21 NIV

20 But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, 21 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.

1. A Christian’s true citizenship is in heaven.

​ Two unhealthy ways we focus our attention on the world:

Desire - coveting the world’s pleasures

Distress - fearing the world’s troubles​

Colossians 3:1 NIV

1 Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.

2. A Christian’s sure hope is a returning Savior.

Philippians 2:11 NIV

11 and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

3. A Christian’s steadfast confidence is in a sovereign Lord.

4. A Christian’s certain future is a resurrected, glorified existence.

Main Idea: A Christian need not fear uncertain or troubling circumstances, because we have a sovereign Lord and Savior, who is coming again to glorify us and bring us to our true home.
