How does our citizenship on earth relate to our citizenship in the Kingdom of God? Paul once reminded the Philippians that “we are citizens of heaven, where the Lord Jesus Christ lives. And we are eagerly waiting for him to return as our Savior” (Philippians 3:20). Peter takes that concept and unpacks it beautifully in his first letter to the early Church. He teaches us how our heavenly citizenship plays out on on earthly plane, and he reminds us of our core identity as citizens of Heaven.
