Making the Kingdom of God Our Primary Concern

Adolescents from our church doing a drama.

There is a team, from the United States working with King's Castle, that is specifically here to do campaigns in the streets. The difference between a campaign and a program is our street programs are geared toward children and a campaign is an evangelistic style service. Last night was the first one and as bus loads of people started pouring in I new God was going to do great things. It was wonderful worshipping the Lord with people from our church but also from other churches and knowing there were many people in the crowd who were not saved, who needed freedom, and healing. The message was on breaking free from your past, breaking free from the fear and hurt that is trying to hold you back. Many people responded and accepted Christ and also received inner healing from their past. Not only that but our church members and leaders were refreshed by the presence of God that filled that place. This morning as I was doing my daily devotions a book I was reading made a reference to Mathew 6. So I turned into my Bible and read Mathew 6 but what really grabbed my attention was verses 25-34. Even more so verses 30 and 33 which says, "And if God cares so wonderfully for flowers that are here today and gone tomorrow, won't he more surely care for you?" I have read this verse a thousand times and today it just comforted my heart and I felt like I truly grasped the meaning of how the Lord wants to and will take care of us if we let him. Then in verse 33 it says, "...and he will give you all you need from day to day if you live for him and make the Kingdom of God your primary concern." We so nonchalantly quote bits and pieces from this portion but if you read the full context there is a promise and we know we can trust and fully believe God's promises but you have to fulfill the IF part. Are you making the Kingdom of God your daily, primary concern? You can start by simply praying for the ministry team that is working on the streets of El Salvador this week and pray for a revival to begin in El Salvador.
