“But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” Matthew 6 : 33
What is the kingdom of God? It is about the spiritual kingdom of heaven over our life. You submit your life to God’s authority. You obey His command and everything you do glorify Him . His kingdom is your kingdom. You do a spiritual fight . Daniel said that “the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed” Daniel 2: 44.
Now the kingdom of God is within you. Whom Christ lifted it by the power of the Holy Spirit. His Kingdom is imperishableF. If you are looking for a stable and forever peace kingdom , so welcome to God’s kingdom. Seek His righteousness then everything will be added to you. This is not your fight , this is His.
The scripture obviously says “ seek the kingdom of God” or “ seek the kingdom of Heaven”. It meant that is not the kingdom of this earth , or another physical planet . Jesus is saying that seek the unseen God and His authority . Seek His face even you can not see it. Normally repentance would be up in this situation when you seek his ways you repent and turn of your sinful nature and back to God. The salvation will be substituted in this situation.
Paul also says in his letter to the church in Corinth “I tell you this, brothers: flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable.” 1 Corinthians 15: 50.
To this very end the natural desires comes second and the supernatural desires comes first .
Paul continues with this that “Behold! I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed” .vastly we see the kingdom of God in the old Testament . The kingdom of God is a changing process inside out. It is not something you can touch but in a way is present and you can feel it within you.
The church of Christ can help you to find a way to reach the kingdom of God but all depends on you and your decision. The kingdom of God is not pushy , it is a soft and powerful home that brings the heaven inside of you. But , wait , It does not mean when we lost our physical reality we will lose the kingdom of God. As I said it is a spiritual reality , it is a spiritual kingdom , it will never die. It will never be faded. You will be still alive. It is really important with this mortal body seek His kingdom. This is honourable. You are still on the earth with this body but you are covered with the kingdom of God, isn’t this awesome ?
I can write to you about the kingdom of God pages and pages. In this short article I want to encourage you that as a Christian seek first His kingdom , because your hope is not on earthly things rather on heavenly realm . Yes , when you sought His will than your earthly needs will be met.
