The Philippians knew very well that they were a Roman colony, with all of the privileges and rights of being full citizens of the Empire. But, Paul reminds them, your king is not Caesar, and Rome is not your citizenship; your king is Jesus Christ, and Heaven is your citizenship. Live, therefore, in a manner worthy of that citizenship. Stand side by side as a united army fighting for that king, to his honor and glory.
