Are you proudly South African? Have you jumped for joy when the South African rugby team scored a try or beamed with pride watching our Olympians winning gold?

Here’s a thought: what Jesus did on the cross changed our citizenship. We’re still South Africans but check this:

‘[God]has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of his dear Son, who purchased our freedom and forgave our sins (Colossians 1v13-14 NLT.)

Because of Jesus we are no longer ‘citizens’ of the kingdom of darkness, we belong to the Kingdom of God. What could it mean to live as a Spirit-filled citizen of God’s Kingdom today?
