The true footstep followers of the Lord Jesus are called to a "heavenly calling" (Hebrews 3:1), to the "high calling of God" (Philippians 3:13). Male and female Christians are running for the office of joint heirship with Christ Jesus in His Kingdom. The Apostle Paul was one of these runners. He realized that a person cannot run for two offices at the same time. He said, "Do not be conformed to this world." (Romans 12:2) This means do not become entangled with the things of this world. 

Again Paul said, "This one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus" (Philippians 3:13,14). Similarly, Jesus said, "Ye are not of this world"; and again, "My kingdom is not of this world," meaning the present evil governments/systems (John 18:36).

Therefore, we come to the conclusion that the chief duty of the Christian is to avoid entangling alliance with worldly systems, and to devote himself to preparing for the kingdom of our Lord when He comes. All good citizens should desire righteous people in office, but a righteous government cannot be established by imperfect men. The Christian's hope is in the biblical teaching that Christ Jesus, the great Messiah, will soon set up His kingdom, and establish righteousness in the earth. "Thy kingdom come, they will be done on earth as it is in heaven." Matthew 6:10
