Troubles and trials might discourage us from worshipping if we decide to blame our misfortunes on God. On the other hand, when we're financially secure, feelings of self-satisfaction can draw our focus away from God toward material comforts. Either way, we're distracted from the One who loves, protects, and provides all good things for us. Isaiah reminds us of the risks of forgetting about God. Join us to learn more about that, as well as ways we can always keep our worship focused on Jesus -- in good times and in bad.
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.
