I had to get my driver’s license renewed recently. There have been changes to this process since I last renewed it 10 years ago. The government now requires much more thorough proof that you are who you claim to be and that you are either a citizen or at least a qualified non-citizen.
There has been quite a bit of debate, often divisive about people who are in this country without benefit of legal standing. Even the way we refer to such people has become a hotly debated topic. String the words “illegal” and “immigrant” or “alien” together and get ready for a heated argument.
The apostle Paul knew a thing or two about citizenship. He played the Roman citizen card when he was facing trial. Yet he was keenly aware of where his true citizenship lay, and ours as well. “For our citizenship is in Heaven,” he wrote to the Philippians. And then he went on to say that fact should give us confidence and courage to stand firm and reason to rejoice always.
When we understand who and whose we really are, it gives us great comfort and reason to rejoice no matter our circumstance.
This week I’ll be sharing from Paul’s letter to the Philippians during Mid Day Prayer Time, every weekday around 10:30 AM and 2:30 PM.
