Seek the Kingdom of God
Topic: New Year

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. (Matthew 6:33-34 KJV)

 

Even though the origin of the New Year's Day arrived from the pagan religion, we need to seek God to start the Year 2017. Most preachers may tell us to sow money into their ministries, so God can bless us financially. That may be truth, but it's wrong idea for God can bless us. Jesus said that we don't need to worry about our future, because He can take care of us right now and the next day can take care by itself. We need too seek God's face rather than His hands. I don't like to watch televangelists TV-a-Thon on the first couple months of the year. They are asking for money to support their TV ministries. Even though churches need our financial support, God doesn't need our money, we need to obey His command.

 

I understand that we are in a difficult spot as President Obama recently has betrayed the people of Israel and our nation has allied with Palestinians before he would finish his presidency term. I don't know if Trump could restore from this tragedy. But there is nothing that God cannot do. He can do anything. But we need to pray to God to bring back our ally.

 

What is your agenda for 2017? The word "prosperity" means more than gaining worldly fame, wealth, and power. Jesus asked in Mark 8:36-37, "For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?" Even we can have anything that this world has, but without Jesus Christ in our lives, it means that we don't have one-on-one relationship with Him. Instead, we will become trash to Him and we would end in Hell. God can bring prosperity to every parts of our lives--spiritually, physically, materially, health and wellness.

 

Let 2017 would be the best year of our lives.

 

Are you saved? Are your love ones and friends saved in the grace of God through Jesus Christ? The purpose of this article is to help you to become closer relationship with Jesus Christ. As Jesus said, "Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. In my Father's house are many rooms, if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am." (John 14:1-3.)

 

If you are lukewarm in your relationship with Jesus Christ and want to know Him as your personal Savior and Lord of your life, please consider asking Him to forgive your sins and invite Him into your life. Paul says, "That if you confess with your mouth, `Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believed and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved." (Romans 10:9-10.) If you have done in your private room or workplace, then you need to tell to your friends or love ones about what you have done, so they may rejoice with you and want to have that relationship with Christ in their own life. There are many occults in the world, which do not know the love of God and His great plan for those who believe in Him. As it is written in John 3:16, "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."
