Philippians 1:27-30

Living as Citizens of Godís Kingdom (Philippians 1:27-30)

Who are you when nobody is watching? What kind of parent? What kind of spouse? What kind of employee? What kind of Christian are you when you think no one is looking? We must be careful that our public confession matches our private conduct. After all, people wonít buy what we confess in public if we are not conducting ourselves with integrity in private. Therefore, if we confess to be Christians, then we should live as citizens of Godís Kingdom.

The key to living as citizens of Godís Kingdom is the person of Jesus Christ. So often we think we have to do something for God, but in reality only Jesus Christ can change our lives. As the apostle Paul said, ďFor it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasureĒ (Phil 2:13)!

There are four essentials for living as citizens of Godís kingdom.

They are:

  • Acting consistently in a Christ-like manner (1:27a)
  • Standing firm in harmony (1:27b)
  • Striving together for the faith of the gospel (1:27c)
  • Being Courageous in face of opposition (1:28-30)

The key to living as citizens of God's kingdom is the person of Jesus Christ. It is impossible to live the Christian life without Jesus Christ.
