CITIZENS OF GOD’S KINGDOM

“Seek first His kingdom and His righteousness…” (Matthew 6:33a NIV)

For us who call ourselves Christians, our views, positions, and beliefs should all spring from our understanding of the will of God.  Christians seek, above all, to know and do the will of God.  Ultimately, nothing matters more than this.  God has created us, has a plan for us, and we believe we will be held accountable for how we respond to God's will.  We consider ourselves citizens of God's kingdom first, even before our national citizenship, and we strive to live so as to bring God's reign to the whole world.  When we invite Jesus to be Lord in our lives, we invite Him to be our sovereign or ruler.  We agree to live by His commands and teachings.  And we pledge to seek to do His will.

-- Adam Hamilton in Confronting the Controversies
