Who Do You Serve – A Country or a Kingdom?
Nations separate from nations, and they are ofcourse prejudice for the people who live in their nations.
Religion separates from other religions, and they are ofcourse prejudice for the people who are in their religion.
Likewise, among those who profess to know and love the Lord Jesus Christ, denomination separates from denomination. It’s called sectarianism, meaning division and strife.
It is not to be so among the people of God!
Paul called them the lust of the flesh, but we call them denominations!
Paul called them a work of the flesh, a sect, a division, a strife, and this is the fruit of denominationalism.
Christians are not to be devided from other christians anywhere in the world. God calls his people “a holy nation” (1 Peter 2:9).
There is no divison in Christ Jesus!
The Lord Jesus said, “My kingdom is not of this world” (John 18:36). And this is so. Our kingdom is not of this world. We are NOT Americans. We are NOT English.
We are not of this world!
I repeat…Christians are not to be devided from other christians anywhere in the world. God calls his people “a holy nation” (1 Peter 2:9).
A Christian in a foreign land is our brother.
Do you think that it is pleasing to the Lord for another christian to go and fight and kill his brother in a war in the name of America or any other country?
This is wrong, it is worldy felshly thinking.
Who’s kingdom are you a part of?
Christ and Christians or America and Patriots?
Who do you serve?
Where does your heart lie?
In a country or a KINGDOM?
