Philippians - Live then, as citizens of Christ's Kingdom Jubilee Church Hull

    • Christianity

Paul’s encouragement to “let your manner of life be worthy of the gospel” could also be translated as “only behave as citizens worthy of the gospel”. In this, Paul is reminding the Philippians, who were proud to be citizens of Rome and of all the advantages that came with that citizenship, that in fact their citizenship is now found in Christ. It is to Christ that we pledge allegiance and for whom we live, and our commitment to Him, even when facing opposition and persecution, will be a sign of our salvation.
