But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body.

– Philippians 3:20-21 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

It’s good that patriotism is alive and well in America. It’s an election year and we have just celebrated July 4th in the U.S. But the Scripture tells us that our allegiance is to another government—we are ultimately citizens of heaven. The freedom that we will experience from this earthen body will not come from any government on earth, but from our ultimate King, Jesus Christ. So rejoice in the nation that God has placed you in, but remember that you are called to be an ambassador for another ruler; Jesus Christ, who will come again.
