Are you a Christian, friend? Then you are a citizen of the kingdom of God. And who is your King? It’s Jesus Christ. He is our only wise King, our interceding King, our annointed King, our reigning King.
– Matthew 6:33 But Seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you
– Luke 12:31 But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.
“Only the kingdom of God is present in such a fashion that a man can daily and moment by moment apply himself to it – seeking the advancement of the kingdom. No one can seek the kingdom of heaven moment by moment, since it is a political institution and beyond the reach of single individuals til it “comes” as the only government on earth, there is nothing to seek. But one who gives himself to serve the kingdom of God, God promises to provide his daily food and clothes, for he is then God’s employee.” – Michael Pearl, Eight Kingdoms
Father in heaven, today, help me to remember that I am a citizen of the kingdom of God and an ambassador of Christ here on earth. Help me Father to bear the likeness of Christ-likeness. Father, teach me to plan to neglect all other things that do not lead to Christ-likeness.
