Colossians 1:13
13 He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son,
(ESV)

When you became a Christian you got both a new identity and a new citizenship.
You became a new creature, and you have been delivered from the kingdom of darkness and its power and dominion. You have now come into a new kingdom and got a new citizenship.
A kingdom has different laws, cultures and ways of behavior, for example, the Kingdom of Norway is very different from the Kingdom of Thailand.
In Thailand, they speak a different language, and they have a completely different culture and behavior.


I am a missionary in Thailand, and I moved out to Thailand for about eight years ago.
When I moved out here and got a work permit to be here, then did I suddenly speak Thai fluently and understand the culture fully? It was not quite so.

The truth is that you are a citizen in a new kingdom, and you've got a new identity, but even if you have a new identity and has entered a new kingdom, you can still think like the old kingdom is thinking and the way your old identity was thinking.
