Seek First The Kingdom

seek firstChristians are supposed to be in this world, but not of this world. Aliens on a mission … the great commission – go ye into the world and make disciples. The directive was clear, but something changed along the way. The message seems to have been intercepted by a lie that to win the world, you have to become like it … think like it, dress like it, talk like it, have similar goals and ambitions.

The desire for position and material things is so great that we pray and fasting for them. We imagine that when we have these things, then we will be able to fulfil the great commission. We forget that the Bible tells us that God already knows that we need these things. We should be seeking first the kingdom. Our Father is the Master General, could he possible send us out into the world on a mission without giving us what we need to survive out there and succeed? I don’t think so.

As a Christian, when God gives you material things and position, it is not for your own comfort. It is to enable you to reach people at that level where he has put you, and to tell them about the greatness and goodness of God.

Your goal as a Christian is to win souls. To live a life such that people want to know and meet this God of yours who loves you so much. The trouble is that we want things to go our way so much that we do not give God the opportunity to shine…

Seek first the Kingdom of God …
