Jan 02 – A New Citizenship

PEI. For these new Canadians it was the end of a long journey, leaving the land of their birth, beginning life anew in the country of choice, embracing new customs, language and culture. It means “following their dream” of freedom of speech, religion and politics, the beginning of a new life. Similarly, we all have the offer of a new life, made possible through the death of Jesus on the Cross. And when we believe that God has raised Him from the dead, a new citizenship is ours. Paul, writing to the Ephesian believers of his day, explained it as follows- “ …therefore you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God.”Later, in a letter to the Philippians. He wrote, “…our citizenship is in heaven, …” I encourage you to leave behind the old life, embrace the new, receive the freedom only Jesus can give.
