Living Hope

Dual Citizens

On Easter morning, we remember that Jesus rose from the grave and has conquered sin and death. Through the resurrection of Jesus, we read in 1 Peter 1:3-5 that we have an inheritance kept for us in heaven which does not spoil or fade. That promise is a source of hope, because we are looking forward to that inheritance. And at the same time, we also have life abundantly in Christ today, because, through faith in God, we are shielded by God's power. (1 Peter 1:5)

Scripture References: 1 Peter 1:3-5

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.
