Philippians 3:20-21 NIV
 But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Saviour from there, the Lord Jesus Christ,  who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body.
Having our hope centred on Jesus gives us the power to live fruitful and joyful lives here and now. Paul is in prison and life must have been tough for him but he is able to get through with joy and rejoicing because he knows that the Lord Jesus has saved him and will save him – this world and situation is not the last word!
Lord Jesus, thank you that you have made us citizens of heaven with a different King and a different drumbeat! Help us to have that living hope, bright in our hearts today.
