Seek first God's Kingdom. What is God's Kingdom? A key comes to us in the Lord's Prayer: "Your kingdom come. Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven." It is fair then to assume that God's Kingdom is anywhere His will is done. How do we know God's will? Look at His commands in the Bible. There are two in particular that Jesus pointed out as being the two most important of all. According to Jesus if we follow these two commands we will be keeping all the laws and commands given by God to His people. What are these two commands?
- Love God with all your heart, soul and mind
- Love your neighbour as yourself
We should love God with our whole being and if we do we will want to do right by Him:
- Get to know Him well by:
- studying His Word (Bible)
- conversing with Him (Prayer)
- Tell others about Him
- Make ourselves and our resources available to be used as He wishes
- Love all human beings wanting to see each soul safe in the Saviour's hand
What does loving ourselves look like?
- wanting the best
- treating ourselves well
- having joy and peace of mind
We must actively seek to recruit members for the expansion of God's Kingdom here on earth. By making ourselves and our resources available to do so; we will find that God multiplies them so we can have that which we need to do so plus an overflow.
