Having Your Conversation in Heaven

“For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:”

Philippians 3:20
The Apostle Paul was encouraging the Philippians to to live a life immersed in heavenly things.  Earlier in this letter he had challenged them to be an example of the Christian faith all of the time.  “Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel;”  (Philippians 1:27)  Everywhere you go, in everything you say, and in everything you do; you ought to strive to have a little bit of Heaven in your life.  It is possible that in any time, in any condition, in any country, in any culture, or in any situation; you can be a Christian that is Christ-like.  Perhaps you have been to an ethnic restaurant that was Mexican, Chinese, Italian, or some other nationality.  No doubt the restaurant would have been decorated in decorations from that country and likely they would have had music playing from that country.  We too are from an heavenly country.  While you are here, seek to have a little of your “country” where you live.  Learn to dwell on heavenly things.  It is a fact you are going to talk about, surround yourself with, and be what you love.  The only way you can truly have your conversation in Heaven is to have it in your heart. 
This week’s biblical principle to consider:
No matter who you are, where you are, or what you do; God wants you to have your conversation in Heaven.  In every situation, look for ways that you can be Christ-like.
