“Citizenship is not simply a status but a whole way of living.”

None of us want to just follow Christ for a part of our life and then walk away. We want to stand firm until the end. We want to persevere. But, how do we persevere in a world that seems so set against us, continuing to make things harder and harder? In this week's sermon we learn exactly how to do that, and how to live thriving lives as citizens of a kingdom where we don't fully live yet.
