But Jesus, knowing their evil intent, said, “You hypocrites, why are you trying to trap me? Show me the coin used for paying the tax.” They brought him a denarius, and he asked them, “Whose image is this? And whose inscription?” “Caesar’s,” they replied. Then he said to them, “So give back to Caesar what is Caesar’s, and to God what is God’s.” When they heard this, they were amazed. So they left him and went away.Matthew 22:18-22
1. Citizenship in the nation you reside requires that you be law abiding.
2. Citizenship in the kingdom of heaven requires you be fully surrendered to God.
3. Jesus will amaze you with his wisdom and insights for life.
Heavenly Father, I am fully surrendered to you.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to live in the land of the free and the home of the brave.
Today, I pray that you will order my footsteps and guide my conversations.
Continue to do amazing things in and through my life.
I give you my skills, resources, time and energy.
I continue to long to see you open doors and provide new opportunities.
I will rely upon your favor and blessing on my life.
In Jesus’ mighty name! Amen!
