Word: “… they profess allegiance to another king, named Jesus.” (Acts 17:7) “… for in baptism you pledge a clear conscience toward God.” (1 Peter 3:21)
Wonder: What do strangers perceive as your life’s priority – that you’re deeply patriotic or that you’re full of faith that God is in control? What do you get most excited about and what causes the passion in your heart to swell – your nation’s blessings or the Lord Jesus, the one who dispenses blessings? If your life was brought to court, of which is there greater evidence to convict you – patriotism or discipleship? Which do you think about and talk most about – our nation’s good things or the salvation of your soul? To whom is your greater allegiance – Christ or country?
