Many Christians believe their true home is in heaven and live as if they cannot wait to get there. Although we are citizens of heaven, this not the full truth. Our current home is on the earth.
Paul had dual citizenship. He was a Jewish citizen and a Roman citizen. He had rights in both places.
We are dual citizens as well. We are citizens of both earth and heaven, with rights in both places. We should not become so focused on heaven that we forget our role on earth. Earth belongs to God. We are his stewards looking after the it for him.
