Living as Dual Citizens

Dual Citizens

Who we are should affect what we do, and how we do it. In 1 Peter 2, we are commanded to fear God, to love others, and honor "the emperor." Although our government looks different now, we are called to respect those who are in authority, and to respect those around us. In today's message, Pastor Phil explores the idea that, as Christians, there are things which we must do (those commands described in 1 Peter 2:13-17), and things which we may do.

Scripture References: 1 Peter 2:13-17

From Series: "Dual Citizens"

Who we are should affect what we do. In 1 Peter 2, we read that, as believers, we are "a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession." That "once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy." As those who have been shown mercy, we should live to glorify God in all that we do. And this includes how we engage with society--our neighbors, our government--and politics.
