I will always long for my home, for the people I love, for the land to which I belong, for the friends and relatives that I miss. I will always long for my wife and my children and grandchildren. But, none of these will ever stop that deep, deep longing for my heavenly home. It is because those who are in Christ, and only those in Christ, belong to another kingdom, another land, another city, another home.

Our past doesn’t own us. Our failures, our sins, our troubles, our aspirations and goals, our hopes and our dreams have no claim on us. Only Christ can claim us. If we stumble and fall, we can get up and go on, even press on because God Himself has set us free.
We no longer belong to this world. Paul says our citizenship is in heaven.
