Our Citizenship

As Christians, we know our earthly citizenship has no bearing on our true identity. At the moment of salvation, all believers become citizens of heaven. Civic responsibilities, while important, are always secondary to our allegiance to the Lord. Jesus’ followers are called to seek His kingdom first, regardless of their nationality.

Philippians 3:20 reminds us that our citizenship is in heaven. Being God’s child is our most essential role, and when we prioritize this relationship above all else, we gain an accurate perspective of life, no matter what is happening in our country or the world. Setting our mind on things above (Col. 3:2) helps us remember our true home in God’s kingdom, where we will gather together with “all the tribes, peoples, and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb” (Revelation 7:9).
