  1. Heaven...... OUr citizenship

    “For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior,
    the Lord Jesus Christ; who will transform the body of our humble state into
    conformity with the body of His glory, by the exertion of the power that He has
    even to subject all things to Himself†(Philippians 3:20-21, NASB).

    A Word From Billy Graham
    “Nothing can be compared with the home going of a believer who says goodbye here
    to all of the suffering, difficulties and the problems in this life, and then is
    surrounded immediately by angels and carried by them to a glorious welcome in
    Heaven. That is the reason I believe that death can be beautiful. I have known
    people to die with expressions of triumph on their faces. No wonder the Bible
    says, ‘Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of His godly ones.’ (Psalm
    116:15, NASB). No wonder David said, ‘Even though I walk through the valley of
    the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your
    staff, they comfort me’ (Psalm 23:4, NASB). Many who read this may be fearing
    and dreading death. You may be in a hospital room or in a room at home, and soon
    God will be calling you to Himself. At the moment you are suffering, but because
    of Christ in another moment you will be transformed. The glories, beauties,
    splendor and grandeur of Heaven will soon be yours. If you know Christ, you can
    put your trust and confidence in Him because He died for you -- and in that last
    moment, the greatest crisis of all, God will have His angels there to carry you
    gloriously, wonderfully into Heaven!â€
