Are You Up For Peter’s Challenges?
6. We are called to a new citizenship
I Peter 2: 10 “Once you were not a people, but now you are a people of God, once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.”
This last challenge is that of our calling to citizenship. I am a citizen of the City of Hot Springs, the State of Arkansas, the nation of the United States of America, on the planet Earth, all of which I proudly claim. But this earth is not my home. When God called me to be one of His people my eternal citizenship changed to heaven where I will live with the people of God forever.
God has graciously allowed me a place on earth to call home for a few years. But, I have a home waiting for me in heaven that has been prepared for me by Heavenly Father. This home will be my permanent home for eternity. This home is a gift of love, grace and mercy that can only come through my faith in Jesus Christ.
This semi-retired REALTOR is looking forward to her eternal home. Are you?
