    An important dimension of the mature discipleship to which followers of Jesus should aspire is responsible stewardship of the gift of our citizenship. Educating ourselves about the issues and candidates, and supporting those who will most effectively advance the common good, are ways in which we can love and bless our neighbors. In order to walk worthy of the gospel, we must remember our citizenship is in heaven. John MacArthur’s comments about the word “conduct” are helpful. He said: Politeuomai (conduct) is the main verb in verses 27–30, which in the Greek is a single sentence.

    At its core, good citizenship is loving our neighbor as we love ourselves and being good and grateful stewards of our homes, communities, towns and cities, states, country and planet. There’s a lot to that, but the courts have simplified it for educators to mean a study of civics or government. Citizenship. The concept of spiritual citizenship is most clearly expressed in Philippians , where Paul writes, "Our citizenship (politeuma []) is in heaven."This is the only place in Scripture where the word is used, but the idea is found in both Jewish and Christian literature.

    This book highlights the opportunity to access the Kingdom of God and its benefits while on earth. Five key spiritual levels are discussed based upon tangible examples and testimonies from Dr. Francois Ahimou’s Ministry experience on four continents over the last twenty years. A House of Prayer for All People complicates the common narrative about the seemingly natural and insurmountable divide between LGBT people and religion. Through an examination of the Metropolitan Community Church in Toronto and its Pastor, The Rev, Brent Hawkes, Seitz elegantly engages with questions of sexual orientation, race, gender, religion as they are intertwined with social justice.

(20) Our conversationThe original may signify either "our city" or "our citizenship" is in heaven.
