Eternal Destiny 

Philippians 3:18-21 NIV

[18] For, as I have often told you before and now tell you again even with tears, many live as enemies of the cross of Christ. [19] Their destiny is destruction, their god is their stomach, and their glory is in their shame. Their mind is set on earthly things. [20] But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, [21] 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.

SINS TO AVOID:

  1. Stand against the cross of Christ– unbelief on the gospel of Jesus Christ 
  2. Making our stomach our god. 
  3. Setting our mind on earthly things. 

— We need food & other material things but these should not be the guiding principle of our lives.

PROMISES TO CLAIM :

  1. Our citizenship is in heaven. 
  2. Our Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, is coming back again. 
  3. Our lowly bodies will be transformed into glorious body by the Lord. 

EXAMPLES TO FOLLOW:

  1. Be eager for the arrival of the Lord, waiting patiently. 
  2. Setting your personal goals on things with eternal value. 

COMMANDMENTS TO OBEY :

SOME OTHER TEACHINGS:

  1. The enemies of Christians are real – Satan as the head.  

MY REFLECTION:

I have been working in the corporate world for almost 12 years now.  But looking back, my daily existence in the corporate world is to beat the target that was set month after month. It’s good to know the tasks that I need to complete in the next couple of days, and those in my 90-day focus. I kept on learning and improving and I can see financial success as well as gaining new friends along the way.  I have gone a long way from where I started but there’s always more ahead of me. It seems that no matter how hard I try, there is always something better in this materialistic world. It’s not bad, but how would you know if enough is enough?

God is so faithful that all these years that He made ways for me to improve spiritually. He introduced me to God-fearing friends, pushed me lead a small church, and sent me overseas to preach in an international church at the heart of the city.  I can feel God’s reminder for me to focus on things that will matter in eternity (on things that concerns the Kingdom of God.) As a child of God, I am privileged to have God’s favor on my life and He is putting me in a position where I can serve Him more.  I know every day is a struggle for me to overcome my own weaknesses and to withstand the attack of Satan but thanks be to God – He is always ready to help me every day and I can claim victory in my life through Jesus Christ’s authority.
