Friday First - Heavenly Citizens

November will serve as the capstone for where we have been this year in our teaching curriculum. Cornerstone is a place of healing. Where does all this lead? Eternity. A place where we will be whole, complete, and righteous … in actuality. We will experience eternal healing. The ultimate healing we look for impresses us with the need to live with a heavenly perspective.

Heaven is what motivates us. We want to see the Savior. We want to hear well done. We want to go to our reward. We want to experience eternal glory. This is the focus of life that is required if we are going to pursue Jesus’ likeness. Since He is a heavenly being, heaven is our place. If we are preoccupied with Him, we are preoccupied with heaven. That means, it really should matter much about what happens here. But, it should matter a whole lot to us about what happens there. Jesus is there. That’s our place.

Our citizenship is there.

In Sunday’s lesson we will examine Philippians 3.20-21 and talk about the need to focus on living life from the perspective of being a heavenly citizen. We will:
  • Discuss what is the focus of our life.
  • Learn how to adjust that focus when necessary.
  • Remember that Jesus is coming back.

As you prepare for worship on Sunday, please give consideration to these questions:
  1. What are some things about heaven you look forward to most?
  2. What things on earth may cloud your focus of the eternal?
  3. What you actively doing to keep yourself focused on heaven?
  4. What does it mean to you to be a citizen of heaven?
  5. How often do you focus on Jesus’ return? Are you looking forward to it?
