World Citizen...

Updated: Mar 29

Since retiring from public education, I have had the privilege of visiting over fifty countries on five different continents. Some of my traveling has been for fun: riding elephants in Thailand, climbing Machu Picchu in Peru, and going on a safari in Nepal are among my many experiences. I have also had the opportunity to teach English at a Christian school in Mexico, serve as a school administrator in Albania, and fill various roles at a Christian school in Bangladesh. These experiences have allowed me to rub elbows with believers who, as God's people, share my citizenship in heaven. My brothers and sisters in Christ might speak a different language, look differently, and might have different customs, but we all love and serve the same Lord Jesus. Our bond is inseparable as we are citizens of the same heavenly realm. 

Regardless of whether you like to travel or not, the world is a small place and getting smaller all the time. Our brothers and sisters in Christ, our fellow citizens of heaven, come in all sizes, shapes,colors. The common bond we share, Christ, is more important than our differences, our politics, or what passport we carry. I feel blessed that while my earthly citizenship will one day end, my heavenly citizenship is eternal.

Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow citizens with God's people

and members of God's household.” Ephesians 2:19

“…our citizenship is in heaven.” Philippians 3:20
