We are citizens of heaven

By Erik Kral

We are citizens of heaven, where the Lord Jesus Christ lives. And we are eagerly

waiting for him to return as our Savior.  Phill.3:20

 

Like many of us, I am the holder of two passports, it gives me the privilege of being a citizen of two countries. Having lived in several countries, I am also the holder of several driving licenses. I have permissions to drive cars in Poland, USA, New Zealand, and of course Australia. Which document is more important? Can I break the law in Poland under my Australian Passport?  Can I ride in the US according to New Zealand’s road rules?
And how do I behave in the Church - the Earthly Embassy of Heaven? Can I hide behind earthly Passport and rights?  Using the privileges of the citizenship of Heaven, which I received from God, I should defend life and promote God's plan and His vision for mankind.
