The Kingdom

Matthew and Luke both record Jesus’ words about seeking the Kingdom of God before looking out for our everday survival. If we seek God’s Kingdom, Jesus said, then God will go ahead and give us food and water and clothes too. Luke then goes on to record these words of Jesus: “Don’t be afraid little flock, for it’s your Father’s good pleasure to give you the Kingdom.”

Did Jesus really say, “Give you the Kingdom”? Well. What exactly does that mean? It’s pretty safe to say that none of us fully understand right now. But it has something to do with Christians being adopted, with having an inheritance in Christ. In other words, it’s blessings beyond our wildest dreams.

So, are we seeking?
