As citizens of this country we hold ourselves to certain ideals, ideals such as are stated in the Declaration of Independence, that all human beings are created equal, with the right to life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness. Throughout our history the citizens of this nation did not live up to those ideals, but we still held on to them. Each Christian citizen of this nation is shaped by another citizenship, our citizenship in the Kingdom of God, with its own set of ideals. Paul’s words in Philippians 3:12-21 help us keep our citizenships in both of these kingdoms in balance.
