Christ said that we should pray this way, “Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” Those of us who claim to be Christians must adjust our goals and our thinking to align with the “Kingdom of God”.
Do you expend a reasonable amount of your personal resources to build the Kingdom of God? or are you more intent upon building your own kingdom? Are you building upon the Rock of Ages or are you building on sinking sand? Are you into the latest fad and fashion or are you even more into what brings glory to the Almighty? Are you more democrat or republican, than you are for the Kingdom of God? Are you more American, Filipino, Canadian, Nigerian, British, Norwegian, Australian, South African, Columbian, Egyptian, Russian, Chinese, etc. than you are for the Kingdom of God?
Do you support your favorite college football or soccer team more than the Kingdom of God? Is your favorite singer or actor more important to you than the Kingdom of God? Does your WHOLE heart belong to the Creator or do you share it with another lover?
Is feeding the hungry important to you? Is visiting the sick important to you. Is visiting those imprisoned on your list of do? What about clothing the naked or taking in strangers? Does hurting needy people matter to you? This is of eternal importance.
It is perfectly alright to enjoy many things in life; however, we may not love these things more than YaHVeH our God. He gave His all for us, and we owe Him our all. Are you a Kingdom of God person? or not? Think carefully and long before you give a flippant half-hearted answer.
Christ said that if we do not love Him above all, then we are not worthy of Him. Check your heart. Your soul is at stake. Let us make a habit of checking our heart from time to time, to make sure we have not compromised it unfaithfully against Christ and His kingdom.
