Seeking God, Matthew 6.33

“But seek first His Kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you” Matthew 6.33 NASB

I read this verse as our closing blessing at Compelled Church yesterday, and I taught on it in our Sermon on the Mount Series on Wednesday. The word of Christ have been encircling my heart since. I am meditating on this. Here are my thoughts and observations, for today. Let’s look at the first word “seek”. The Greek word for seek is “to try and obtain or to get.” The verb denotes continually. So we are to be seekers the Kingdom of God, and the righteousness of Christ.
This means effort on our part. This is something we do. I believe it matters if we do or don’t do it. It matters how much we seek, how intently we seek. How long we seek. How consistent we seek.
What is your level of seeking Christ? Do you daily go after the Kingdom? Do you look at the Word? Is the seeking of God culminating to transformation of your life? Let’s step up our intensity of being seekers of God.

Psalm 9.10 “And those who know Your name will put their trust in You, For You, O LORD, have not forsaken those who seek You.”

  1. Good word PN. I missed Wed., but “seek forst the kingdom” is huge. i like that you said its something we do and that it requires time and effort, continually. Deut. 4:29 and Jer 29:13 are some challenging conditional promises along these lines too. They say the same thing. The Scripture from Hebrews that exhorts us to make every effort to enter His rest comes to mind too. You should see how much effort Elias puts forth to seek and find me when I’m home. It’s something else. The Lord has been using it to speak to me. He literally exerts alls his effort to obtain my attention continually. I love it, but it’s hard to always give him all the time he wants with the others needs too.
