Scripture

Now I am coming to you. I told them many things while I was with them in this world so they would be filled with my joy. I have given them your word. And the world hates them because they do not belong to the world, just as I do not belong to the world.

I’m not asking you to take them out of the world, but to keep them safe from the evil one. They do not belong to this world any more than I do. Make them holy by your truth; teach them your word, which is truth. Just as you sent me into the world, I am sending them into the world. And I give myself as a holy sacrifice for them so they can be made holy by your truth.

John 17:13

Prayer

We are not really citizens of this world, as we are true citizens of your kingdom. Help me to keep this clear in my thinking. It is so easy to have conflicting allegiance and end up serving the wrong authority. Help me to serve your will and then to be a blessing to my community and nation.
