~ The Obedience Call As A Citizen of Heaven ~
Series Note ~ In this set of postings we will look at the calling of God from three aspects. First there is the Universal Call to all mankind for salvation. Second there is the call that all Christians receive—the Obedience Call. Finally, there is a call which all Christians receive, but sadly few accept, the Career Call.
In the first post in this series, we considered the Universal Call. In posts 2-5 we look at the new responsibilities for Christians who have accepted the Obedience Call. In posts 6-12 we examine the new roles of Christians who have accepted the Obedience Call.
Comment ~ A citizen has an identity and an allegiance to a specific country. As a citizen of any country, including heaven, there are expectations and obligations.
Scripture ~ “For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body, according to the working by which He is able even to subdue all things to Himself” (Philippians 3:20-21).
