Each week, Bec and Jeziel ask local leaders and pastors, to share an inspirational message.

This week Terry Nightingale, from Southern River Church of Christ, talked about our citizenship in Heaven. Terry and his wife are house-sitting for their friends. “That is the weirdest thing to live in someone else’s house. The bed is different, the lounge is different, the TV remote is different.” But it got him thinking about living somewhere that is not your home. In the bible, it talks about our citizenship in heaven and he wondered what it would look like to take that seriously.

“Jesus got that balance perfect. He was present on earth but doing the will of the father. When he was talking about the end of his life he said he was going to his father. He models that balance to do things we’re called to and enjoy the life God has given us. Also knowing that there is a far greater purpose in heaven.”
