    For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father our Lord Jesus Christ, of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named. . . So begins St. Paul’s prayer for the Ephesians church (Eph. 3:14-21), which I have selected as my prayer for the readers of this article and any who might follow for as long as the Lord and the editor are willing.

    As a native of this area, I understand most of the pressures and circumstances of the people here and realize the difficulty of life in these times.

  • Scripture passage: Joshua 5:13-15

    Jesus and politics! Christian and politics! It has been said that these do not mix. It would be safe for me to say that Jesus is surely above politics. However, the question is, “Would He have His followers be involved in the political process?” On the one hand, we should not put our eternal trust in worldly leaders. On the other hand, Christians must be involved in the political process. Any way you look at it, Jesus and politics are a hot topic.

  • 1 Peter 2:11-17
    The Bible talks about our duties as citizens. In fact, every Christian has dual citizenship. The word conduct that is used in 1 Peter 2:11-17 and several times in Philippians denotes our behavior, citizenship, and conduct in the world.
    *Philippians 3:20 says that our citizenship is in heaven.
