"But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you."Matthew 6:33
Righteousness means to be in right-standing with God. When we as followers of Christ put our hope and trust in Jesus as our salvation we are put in right-standing with God through the blood of Jesus. Then, we are able to seek first His kingdom, or the rule and reign of God in our own lives and in the world around us. There is no higher calling than to love God with all we are and to seek to share Him with those to whom we are sent. Becoming simple, like a little child, is the only way to enter into the kingdom of God and see multiplying movements started for Him in the world. Love God and love others—pass it on.
Disciple's Prayer for Today:
"Father, may Your kingdom come and Your will be done today on earth as it is always done in heaven. Make me so like You that I carry Your very presence with me as I go out today to see more and more people come to know You as Father. Let me live as a contagious disciple maker worth multiplying, loving You and loving others as You did.”
Prayer for the Unreached of the Day:
"Father, I represent the Sasak peoples of Indonesia to You. Father, this number seems so large to me but You see every single individual among these people! Intervene in their lives and open their eyes and hearts to know You as Lord and Savior. Direct ambassadors of Your Kingdom to love You and love them as You would. Let these messengers simply proclaim Your Truth in word and deed. Send your Holy Spirit to bring about movements that spark movements so that not one single person is without having a real opportunity to know and follow Jesus."
