I always find it interesting to see how each person often takes a unique approach to our quote for the week.
In order for heaven to be in me, I must be ...in Christ. As a Christian, I have surrendered my life and invited Jesus to live in my heart.
However, I still live in an earthly body and I have moment by moment choices to make. You see, I still have my free will.
Sometimes, I think that's my problem. But I wouldn't want to be a robot who is programmed to make all the "right choices". I want to ...make the choice to love God and to obey Him.
I have a different perspective as a Christian. Even though for right now I live in this world, my true citizenship is in heaven. But at times, that can be challenging since I can't see, taste, touch and feel this with my physical senses. I take this by faith.
I believe if we are more heavenly minded, we will actually be of more earthly good. The opposite is often quoted. But if I choose to allow Christ to live in and through me, I can be His hands and feet to people in this world. And then I will be a blessing to others in word and deed.
So, I chose to remember that I'm just passing through and that heaven is my real home.
And in the meantime, I want to be used by God to touch the lives of both believers and even those who don't believe ...YET.
