Kingdom of God first

BethanySMC - Thursday, 20 October 2011 03:18

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Mat 6:33

I have been meditating upon God’s Kingdom allowing my King Jesus to establish His rule in my life, I saw that such things as meekness, patience, modesty, humility, holiness, righteousness, joy and peace are the true marks of those who belong to God’s Kingdom. “Seek ye first the kingdom of God” opened up to me as seek ye first everything that this kingdom has to offer. 

 We all know every country has its own constitution, every kingdom has its own king and each nation has its own culture. If you would blend in to another nation without studying their culture, laws, ethics and pursuit to be “like them” in every way- it would be next to impossible to succeed. In a way it describes the effort we must put into pursuing God’s kingdom – just wanting to join in not enough. You and I have to put everything behind and press forward to attain and be worthy of the kingdom that will stand forever.

I invite you to join me and let us meditate together upon the traits of God’s kingdom and His people – so we can be true representatives of Christ on this earth. If we seek His kingdom as our first priority – God promises that we will not lack any good thing here on this earth as well.
