Matthew 6:33. But above all pursue his kingdom and righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

The word “pursue” means to seek to obtain or to go after. So many think this verse means to seek salvation and once had just enjoy life on this earth. What it means is to diligently go after the Kingdom of God; to live and work in His Kingdom; to be part of His Kingdom. His Kingdom is within us when we receive Jesus Christ, God the Son, into our hearts and minds as our Lord – the director of all we say and do. So many of us try to live in 2 kingdoms.mmwe are comfortable with the carnal world and don’t want to leave it. We hear about God’s Kingdom and want to visit it from time to time but fear we would have to give up too much to stay in it. We forget the fruits that art in His Kingdom and confuse the counterfeit fruits in our carnal kingdom. Once we really believe what Jesus says and Who God really is we will become thirsty and hungry enough to pursue His Kingdom at all cost. Our question is which kingdom do we want to live in, the world with its counterfeit fruits or God’s with the real fruits of love, peace, joy, etc.?
