“Our citizenship is in heaven.” Philippians 3:20 As Christians, our true home is in heaven, yet sometimes our desires tether us to the here and now. We enjoy God’s good gifts – marriage, children, grandchildren, travel, careers, and friends. At the same time, the Bible challenges us to focus on “things above” (Colossians 3:1-2) Several Old Testament believers mentioned in Hebrews 11 had strong faith in God that enabled them to embrace His promises before receiving them. One such promise was heaven. If we too put our faith in God, He will give us a desire for that “heavenly country” and will loosen our grip on this world. For the Christian, heaven is spelled H-O-M-E.
