I am a Christian who believes that the Kingdom of God will one day come.  I believe it will not be a thing of misty, vague spirits but that the Bible teaches that it will be a physical, tangible thing and that we will have bodies after the resurrection.  This is the hope of Christianity.

While I am a proud citizen of the United States of America, I think it is well for us to consider what citizenship in that Kingdom will mean.  On that day, in that bright land, we may still be male and female, or even have unique races.  I do not know, but I do believe that God delights in all our variety and unique traints and qualities.

However, I do not believe that our old, tired nationalities will follow us. I am convinced that our citizenship will be in that Kingdom, as the scriptures so allude.

So when we love our countries, that is well. But let us love even more that country we long for most, and where we will never know sorrow, loss, struggle, contention or injustice ever again.

Our flags will go to dust along with our constitutions. But the King?  The King will be our government and will live forever.
