Luke 11:1-4; Romans 14:17; Ephesians 2: 4-6; Revelation 12: 10-12; Revelation 5: 1-12
- As Christians, we have to be fully aware of our heavenly citizenship, especially the privileges we have in Christ;
- We should not let the world condition us to feel that we are the same as others;
- Being different gives us the understanding to do things differently;
- Understand your uniqueness;
- Honour God differently, His name is to be hallowed;
- Forgive others so that your heart will be free. Get rid of offences;
- God’s kingdom must be at work in our lives first before we can take it to others;
- Because we have found Jesus, our level of righteousness MUST increase;
- There must be peace in our hearts. Peace doesn’t mean that ‘we don’t have storms’, it simply means that we must carry the master of peace at all times irrespective of current circumstances;
- We can live in this world and still not be of this world. We have the grace to live godly lives;
- Salvation brings a change of position. When your salvation becomes more real to you than the world you live in, you begin to change your status. This starts with changing your mindset and embracing the truth of the gospel;
- Do not settle for the common. Else, you will lose the opportunities to fight your lfe’s battles from a unique vantage point;
- No place on earth is good enough to be a substitute for the place God has raised us for;
- We should not play with our relationship with Jesus because He gives us access into heaven. Jesus is our entry code/password into heaven – take care not to abuse the grace upon your life;
- Was true followers of Christ, we are no longer strangers, but members with fellow citizens and saints of the household of God. We have access to the commonwealth of Israel. We should not allow the enemy to twist the truth by convincing us that we are not seated with Christ. The promises of God are for the dwellers of His kingdom.
- The things of earth should not hold us down; we should begin to see what we carry.
- When God says He has raised us up sit with Christ, nothing can disqualify us unless we refuse to dwell there.
- If you are very close to God, you will see how big He is. If you are away from Him, He will begin to look small. To be heavenly, we have to be close to God.
