Two Destinations

“For, as I have often told you before and now say again even with tears, many live as enemies of the cross of Christ. Their destiny is destruction, their god is their stomach, and their glory is in their shame. Their mind is on earthly things. But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, 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.” (Philippians 3:18-21)

There are two destinations:

1) Destruction
2) Heaven and a glorious body like Christ’s glorious body

The means to the first destination:

• Be an enemy of the Cross of Christ.
• Have your stomach as your god.
• Glory in your shame.
• Set your mind on earthly things.

The means to the second destination:

• Anticipate with eagerness the return of our Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.

Are you on the right path?
