CITIZENS OF THE KINGDOM
Acts 22:28 ERV "The commander said, “I paid a lot of money to become a Roman citizen.” But Paul said, “I was born a citizen.”
Once we were sinners, lost in the world; hopeless, helpless, clueless; slaves, insecure, preys of Satan! We were doomed to eternal damnation until when we believed on the Lord Jesus Christ. Being born again, we were translated from the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of God! Hallelujah!
Ephesians 2:19 says, "So now you non-Jewish people are not visitors or strangers, but you are citizens together with God’s holy people. You belong to God’s family." Hallelujah!
We are not just inhabitants of the Kingdom, no, we were born there and have all the rights and privileges of citizens! We are in the world, but not of the world! We are unlimited by earthly circumstances; God reigns over our affairs and we have been given power to walk in liberty and dominion! Hallelujah!
