A Heavenly Citizen

1 Peter 2:15-16 KJV For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men: [16] As free, and not using your liberty for a cloke of maliciousness, but as the servants of God.
 
We must understand that first and foremost we are citizens of heaven, We are simply pilgrims on this earth. There are those who do not understand the Bible and the things of God. Because they do not understand, they may often say things that are not correct. Our response is not to simply argue with them. We can and should reason with them out of the Word of God. But the way we life should be so consistent with the Word of God that our actions put to silence those things said that are not consistent with the Bible. We should not respond our of anger or maliciousness.
