This may seem like a coincidence, but because I know the Lord, I know that nothing is a coincidence. You may or may not have noticed that I’m studying the book of Philippians, and the next few verses that I’m meditating on are about death and the resurrected body. My friend who has been battling liver disease, passed away this morning. She had fought for her life long enough, and God called her home. When you’re saved, this earth is not your final destination. We were given bodies that would eventually wear out and lose their usefulness here on earth, but salvation gives us eternity with our Savior and a newly transformed body that can inhabit the environment of Heaven. Even though we must traverse this life, we should keep our conversation with Heaven open and continuous because that is the realm we will spend eternity in. Don’t get caught up in worldly things, it will all be burned up at the end. Set your face toward Heaven, and never lose sight of your destination.
But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself. Philippians 3:20-21
