Citizens of Heaven, Part 1
We are “in the world” but we are not meant to be “of the world.” When Jesus defeated death on the cross and when we accepted his forgiveness we started our “resurrection life” in Him! Now this does not mean we ignore the society, laws and government he has allowed to be established around us. As Jesus stated in Matthew 22 we are to “give back to Caesar what is Caesar’s, and give to God what is God’s.” Although the reality of Heaven and of eternity is the greater reality in our lives we should do whatever we do as for the Lord and live as good citizens of both our earthly realm as well as the eternal Kingdom of God.
