All My Bags Are Packed

Old suitcase

Jim Denison remembers something remarkable that happened while he was serving as a missionary in East Malaysia. At the end of a worship service at a small church, a teenage girl came forward to announce her decision to accept Christ by being baptized.

During the service, Denison had noticed some worn out luggage leaning against the wall of the church building. When he asked about it, he was told, “Her father said that if she was baptized as a Christian she could never go home again. So she brought her luggage.”

The Bible says, “But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ.” (Phil.3:20).

I guess some people have a greater understanding of that than others.
