A New Year's Prayer
From Series: "Your Kingdom Come"
The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand! Those were the first words that Jesus used when he began to preach. He went throughout Galilee, teaching and proclaiming the gospel of the Kingdom. He said that the Kingdom of Heaven was for the poor in spirit, for the meek, for the pure in heart, and for the persecuted. He said that the self-righteous could never enter the Kingdom of Heaven. He told us that the thing we should be seeking first and foremost in this life is the Kingdom of God and his righteousness. If we do that, he will take care of everything else. Let’s abandon our anxious pursuit of the treasures of this earthly kingdom and instead live as citizens of the Kingdom of God.
