What does it mean to be a citizen of Christ’s kingdom and be a citizen of the kingdoms of this world? Can a Christian be both? Do we live as a blessing or a curse?

We will learn from the Prophet Jeremiah as he teaches God’s people in exile to live for the good of the nation where God has placed them.
Second fiddle, second best, second place, second choice. All of us have felt the sting of feeling like we weren't part of the A-team. But theBible makes it clear that God can do world-changing work through the unexpected people of the world.

Navigating the roads just gets easier and easier. We no longer study maps, we just tell out phones where we want to go. But sometimes in life, we find ourselves on a journey where the GPS can’t guide us and where there is no map. But the testimony of God’s people is that God is with us and God sustains us even when our journey is Uncharted.
