Citizenship : The status of a citizen with rights, privileges, and responsibilities.

Philippians 3:20  For our citizenship is in heaven; from whence also we wait for a Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:

Eph 2:19 So then ye are no more strangers and sojourners, but ye are fellow–citizens with the saints, and of the household of God,

We have been translated into God's kingdom at the new birth. All Christians have the
God given privilege of being citizens of heaven.

Most Christians think of being in heaven when we die, or when Jesus returns for us but in truth, we already hold citizenship.

Although we are here on earth clothed with these fleshly bodies we are still in the kingdom of God. As citizens we are to represent our King as His ambassadors to this lost world.

 Philippians 2:15 That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;

2Corinthians 5:20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us; we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God.

A citizen of any country, nation or government has the rights and privileges that go alone with it. The same is true of Heaven. The New Testament is our legal binding document (Testament) which was ratified by the blood of Jesus Christ.

In the New Testament we find out about our citizenship, with all the rights, privileges and
responsibilities that go with it.
