I am a citizen of the kingdom of God

Therefore, since we are receiving an unshakable kingdom, let us be filled with gratitude, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe. – Hebrews 12:28

Everything around us, both the things we hold dear and those things which burden us, will be shaken and fall away. They are temporary and short-lived, but there is one thing which is unmovable.

God’s dominion is forever. His rule and reign and power are eternal. His plans are settled and secure. His love is strong and everlasting. His grace will never dwindle or fade. The troubles we encounter will soon be gone. Our anxieties and cares will be taken away. We will understand that our jobs or fame or material goods are of no concern, because God’s kingdom provides all our needs and desires.

As believers in Jesus our salvation cannot be shaken. As followers of Him our lives cannot be shaken. As children of God our future cannot be shaken. We are part of His unending, infinite, unshakable kingdom. We are forever citizens and inhabitants of God’s country!
