Citizen of heaven.

God’s desire is for everybody to be saved. John 3:17 God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him.

citizenship – conduct as a citizen; “award for good citizenship” For one to be a citizen of a country, there is qualifying criteria. All those who run the race, have hopes of finishing. One only hope that they all trained enough for the race. They all have prospect of finishing the race but along the way some will drop out not that they did not want to win but the ask was too much for them.

Luke 13:24 “Work hard to enter the narrow door to God’s Kingdom, for many will try to enter but will fail. As much as you want to accommodate everybody, there are those who will be kicked out of the system.

Philippians 3:18-20 For I have told you often before, and I say it again with tears in my eyes, that there are many whose conduct shows they are really enemies of the cross of Christ. They are headed for destruction. Their god is their appetite, they brag about shameful things, and they think only about this life here on earth. But we are citizens of heaven, where the Lord Jesus Christ lives. And we are eagerly waiting for him to return as our Savior.
