Though we were once alienated from God, those who have been reconciled to Him will also be transformed by him. Alistair Begg reminds us that when we come to faith in Christ we become citizens of God’s Kingdom, members of His family, and stones in His temple. As we live out our new identity in Christ, our concern should be for the kingdom instead of our own interests. We bear with one another because we have the same Father, and we display the reality that God is building a people for Himself from every tribe and nation.
