September 4th - 25th
Christians are said to be “in the world” but not “of the world.” As we live here in the world and the time in which God placed us, we carry a sort of dual citizenship. We are members of the kingdom of God, and we are members of whatever organized, political state rules over us.
Though our status as citizens of an earthly government is limited and far less important than our citizenship in God’s kingdom, we are still to take it seriously and treat it as a privilege. Thankfully, as we do so, God has given us instruction in the Bible as to what that might look like.
