Those who belong to the family of faith enjoy the privilege of protection, and the privilege of provision.

The citizens of earthly nations pay taxes so that needs will be met; the citizens of God’s family have their REAL needs provided for by God according to His riches in glory in Christ.

But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:19

Citizenship in an earthly nation is supposed to provide safety and acceptance; citizenship in God’s nation and family provides a home and unseverable relationships (although fellowship may be tested, strained, and even broken).
