Matthew 6:33 tells us to “Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” But what does it mean to seek the Kingdom of God? Indeed what does it mean to seek first the Kingdom of God? I believe that it is all about complete and absolute surrender to God and His will for our lives.
But we like to think that we have some kind of control over our lives, don’t we? We like to think that we are “the master of our fate/The captain of our souls” (Invictus, William Ernest Henley, 1849-1903). I believe that we like to think that we have something to say about how we lives because we feel that it somehow completes us. It is what makes us individuals.
Yet the Scriptures tell us time and again that we are made complete in Jesus. When He comes into our lives, He fills us with His love, gives us His mercy and shows us His grace. Through the work of the Holy Spirit we are made into new people, with a new purpose to serve God.
Seeking first the Kingdom of God is giving our all to the Master. When we do so, He will bless us with His presence in our lives. Ànd all these things will be added unto you. This God`s blessing to us as His people.
