Kingdom Citizens

I once heard this statement: “Be Kingdom citizens, not systems citizens.”  That person was commenting on the various theological systems that have been developed.  While recognizing that there is a place for a  certain amount of “system” in theology, this person was expressing the importance of finding one’s identity through citizenship in the Kingdom of God, rather than simply through adhering to a particular system of theology or doctrine.  This reminds me of Matthew 6:33, where Jesus commands us to “Seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness.”
