TOPIC: BECOMING A KINGDOM PATRIOT
TEXT: DANIEL 3: 14-18
Today, EVANG. DAVID OFURUM teaches…
A Patriot is a person who loves and strongly supports or fights for his or her country. Patriotism, the love and devotion you have toward your country, makes you go the extra mile for your country. “Patriot” is not a title, it is patriotism that makes you a patriot. Every nation, country or kingdom expects patriotism from its citizens. Kingdom patriotism makes devoted to the cause of the Kingdom of God (KOG) to contribute to its advancement. You don’t just profess patriotism, you display it under all circumstances.
EXAMPLES OF KINGDOM PATRIOTS
Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego – captives in a strange land, bearing foreign names under compulsion, surrounded by negativities – maintained their allegiance to the KOG. As a citizen of the KOG, you may find yourself in the environment of some earthly kingdom, but you never forget the Kingdom whose citizen you are and whose interests you represent. Patriots are like ship/aircraft captains, they stay loyal to their vessel/aircraft even if they have to die for it. Kingdom patriots never break their allegiance to their King and Kingdom.
