1 Peter 2:9-10 NKJV
But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation,
His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him
who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; who once
were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not
obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy.
John 18:36 NLT
Jesus answered, “My Kingdom is not an earthly kingdom. If it
were, my followers would fight to keep me from being handed over to
the Jewish leaders. But My Kingdom is not of this world.”
John 17:13-18 NLT
“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.”
How to Live as One Nation Under God

  1. Put our hope in Christ, not political leaders
    Psalm 146:3 NIV
    Do not put your trust in princes, in human beings, who cannot save.
    Philippians 3:18-21 NIV
    For, as I have often told you before and now tell you again even with
    tears, many live as enemies of the cross of Christ. Their destiny is
    destruction, their god is their stomach, and their glory is in their
    shame. Their mind is set on earthly things. But our citizenship is in
    heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus
    Christ, who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under
    his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his
    glorious body.
    Jeremiah 17:5-7 NIV
    This is what the Lord says: “Cursed is the one who trusts in man,
    who draws strength from mere flesh and whose heart turns away
    from the Lord. That person will be like a bush in the wastelands; they
    will not see prosperity when it comes. They will dwell in the parched
    places of the desert, in a salt land where no one lives. “But
    blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in
    him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its
    roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are
    always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to
    bear fruit.”
    How to Live As One Nation Under God
  2. Live on the platform of righteousness and justice
    Psalm 89:14 NKJV
    Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne…
    Psalm 33:5 NKJV
    He loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of the goodness
    of the Lord.
    Isaiah 28:16-17 NLT
    …”Look! I am placing a foundation stone in Jerusalem, a firm and
    tested stone. It is a precious cornerstone that is safe to build on.
    Whoever believes need never be shaken. I will test you with the
    measuring line of justice and the plumb line of righteousness…”
    RIGHTEOUSNESS: Living right toward God, living by a moral code of
    conduct from by God’s Word
    JUSTICE: Living right toward people, correcting the injustices of
    society, defending the poor and marginalized
    How to Live As One Nation Under God
  3. Live as Christ’s Ambassadors for the Government of God
    AMBASSADOR: Someone who represents one government while
    living in another
    2 Corinthians 5:20 NKJV
    Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were
    pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled
    to God.
    Daniel 4:27 ESV
    “Therefore, O king, let my counsel be acceptable to you: break off
    your sins by practicing righteousness, and your iniquities by
    showing mercy to the oppressed, that there may perhaps be a
    lengthening of your prosperity.”
    1 Peter 2:11-17 MSG
    Friends, this world is not your home, so don’t make yourselves
    cozy in it. Don’t indulge your ego at the expense of your soul. Live an
    exemplary life among the natives so that your actions will refute
    their prejudices. Then they’ll be won over to God’s side and be there
    to join in the celebration when he arrives. Make the Master proud of
    you by being good citizens. Respect the authorities, whatever their
    level; they are God’s emissaries for keeping order. It is God’s will
    that by doing good, you might cure the ignorance of the fools
    who think you’re a danger to society. Exercise your freedom by
    serving God, not by breaking the rules. Treat everyone you meet with
    dignity. Love your spiritual family. Revere God. Respect the
    government.
    The Lord’s Prayer
    “Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy
    kingdom come, thy will be done, here on earth as it is in heaven. Give
    us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we have
    forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us
    from evil. For thine is the Kingdom, the power, and the glory forever.
    Amen.”
