“So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God,”
Ephesians 2:19 ESV
Aliens is a pretty charged word in our world today as we watch thousands of people migrating from one country to another. It’s not just here in the U.S. either, it’s happening around the world. We have established that there are citizens in God's country, the Kingdom, and that all of us as citizens have been sent into the world to act as ambassadors. God's representatives.
Who are we ambassadors to though and what are we called to re-present to them. We are ambassadors to the foreigner, the alien who is not yet a part of the Kingdom. It’s the Gospel, God's invitation to become a citizen of His Kingdom, that we share. There are NO illegal aliens in the Kingdom, only former aliens who have accepted the offer to become full fledged citizens themselves.

How many Aliens, foreigners to the Kingdom , have you presented the invitation of the gospel. How many have become citizens like you and been welcomed into the Kingdom. Share a DBO with one alien friend this week to start that conversation. If you haven’t accepted the invitation yourself, come on over and join us today. Citizenship is a free gift you just have to accept.
