Seeking the Kingdom
Many new Christians start reading the Bible at Matthews Gospel and it is not too long before they come across the verse:
Mt6.33 But first, continually search for the Kingdom of God and His righteousness
Unfortunately, for many, it is not too long before they move on and forget the verse. Yet this verse informs us that as far as the Lord Jesus Christ is concerned, of first importance for us is the seeking, the searching for, the inquiring after the Kingdom of God. In the original, we are told to continually do this. It is not something we do once or twice and stop. No! For all of our lives we must seek, search for, inquire after the Kingdom of God.
This website contains articles regarding the Kingdom of God. The articles are offered by way of encouragement to stir us up to seek for more of the Kingdom of God in our lives and in the lives of others. Let us remember that the Kingdom of God is not of this world but is of the spirit world and as such it cannot be learnt by memorising facts. The Kingdom of God has to be lived, lived in the spirit world, lived out in obedience to all that God reveals to us. As the very first article (The Ant Parable - below) illustrates, the spirit realm is far larger than anything we can comprehend, after all, God is able to do far more than we can ask or think!
Finally, if we are stirred up to seek for more of the Kingdom of God in our lives and the lives of others; let us remember that the Kingdom of God is radically different from the kingdoms of this world. Often people seek for the Kingdom of God because they have problems, insurmountable problems. Yet God understands our problems and Gods solutions, ultimately, are the only ones that actually work! God is a loving God who wants the very BEST for you. His ways bring the very best into our lives and the lives of those around us.
