The “visitors”

This is a dumb post but but I’m going to write it anyway. I was lying in bed last night unable to sleep because my neck muscles were tight causing a headache. It got me thinking about the science-fiction television series V, which we have been having fun watching each week. The alien “visitors” as they are called, are reptilian creatures in human skin. This week, one of the undercover aliens was complaining about living every moment of the past 20 years trapped in the hideous body of a human. Got me thinking about how wonderful it will be when we are free from the earthly bodies. But they are–as are all our aches, pains, allergies and illnesses–a constant reminder that we are also “visitors,” sojourners whose citizenship is in heaven even though we are here on earth for now.

“But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ.” Philippians 3:20
