What does it mean to have dual citizenship? It means your loyalties are split between the two kingdoms. Christian, you are not a dual citizen. Above all, and only, you are a citizen of heaven, and God is your King. When we identify as a Christian, because our Father has given us that identity through His Son, Jesus, our allegiance should be to His rules and regulations. Our conduct should reflect whose we are. As a church, we must stand together in one spirit and one mind to bring glory and honor to God. We must set the example for a unified people that stands for the heart of God: love, justice, mercy, grace, the sanctity of life (all of life, not just the babies in the womb), and truth. We stand against hate, injustice, murder, racism, destruction, oppression, and lies. We don’t (and can’t) stand alone; we stand with other believers in Jesus and with Jesus Himself, who left the 99 and went after the 1.
Philippians 1:27: “Above all, you must live as citizens of heaven, conducting yourselves in a manner worthy of the Good News about Christ. Then, whether I come and see you again or only hear about you, I will know that you are standing together with one spirit and one purpose, fighting together for the faith, which is the Good News.”
