We Cannot Serve God and Mammon

Matthew 6:33(KJV) But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will added to you.

Christ made it simple for those who desire to follow His instructions to enter the Kingdom of God.

Notice Christ did not say unless we know everything possible about the kingdom of God, we will not be able to be a part of it.

In contrast He said if you just make it your first priority seeking the kingdom and His righteousness, then all the blessings of it will be added to you.

By simply seeking first the kingdom of God and His righteousness . . . all these things the world is fighting over will be added. This mainly refers to food, clothing, and shelter.

What is His righteousness?

His righteousness is God’s way of living life.

After all if we believe He created all life, then surely He must be the ultimate authority on life and how to live it properly.

We know the kingdom of God will not be established in the world materially until some future unknown date. However the Lord came to usher in His kingdom as a living reality for those who would accept and believe His words.

In other words this kingdom of God Christ came to offer the world was a manner of living God’s way and not the Worlds way.

Christ told them the kingdom of God is at hand and is within you. Therefore this kingdom of God or God’s way of living life is available to all those who accept and believe the words of Christ today.

Christ said that we cannot serve God and Mammon. Or we cannot serve the World and the kingdom of God simultaneously.

The choice is up to each and every individual to either go God’s way or the world’s way. The only way a person can make an intelligent decision is if they have all the information they need. This is where those who follow Christ come into the picture. Christ said we were to go into the entire world and preach the gospel of the kingdom of God to every creature.

Mark 16:15-16 (KJV)
And he said unto them, Go ye into the entire world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

Following this directive is the best way followers of Christ can help this troubled word.

Every Kingdom Citizen are to share the message of the coming Kingdom with others whether it be to thousands or with one person.
