THE GOOD STUFF: Citizenship

November 16, 2014Randy Christian

Paul was a Jew–and a leading Pharisee at that. He was also a Roman–holding a citizenship that literally saved his life on several occasions. Paul used these credentials when they helped further the gospel, but his real prize was his citizenship in heaven. He understood what that meant, and was willing to rid himself of anything that would keep him from living as a citizen of God’s Kingdom.

YOLO: One Nation

February 3, 2013Randy Christian

One Nation
Since September 11, Americans have rediscovered patriotism and national pride. We are re-establishing a national identity and trying to redefine what it means to be “American”. But Christians aren’t “American”, but something else. There is only one “Nation under God”-but perhaps we need to re-establish our identity too.

Una Nación
Desde el 11 de Septiembre, los americanos han redescubierto el patriotismo y el orgullo nacional. Estamos re-estableciendo una identidad nacional y tratando de redefinir lo que significa ser “Americano”. Pero los Cristianos no son “Americans” sino otra cosa. Solo hay una “Nación bajo Dios”-pero tal vez tenemos que re-establecer nuestra identidad también.
