Here it is Sunday again and today starts my least favorite week of the year (more on that in another post).
You Are An Ambassador
Since the kingdom of God is within you, you are His ambassador. You represent the kingdom to everyone you meet.
If you and I remember, give thanks for and live out the kingdom being in us then maybe, just maybe we will thrive this week instead of just surviving.
Good Sun-day morning and welcome to week 8 of 52 Bible Verses. Hopefully God is using the selected verses in your life each week.
February In Ohio
It was 67 degrees here in Cleveland, OH and all this week temperatures will be above normal. This week’s picture was taken at one of the many local parks yesterday.
This weeks verse comes from the section of Matthew 6 that pertains to not being anxious.
Do Not Be Anxious
25 “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?27 And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? 28 And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, 29 yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? 31 Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. 33 But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
34 “Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.
This week, your assignment is two-fold:
- Seek His Kingdom
- Seek His Righteousness
Praying you find His kingdom and righteousness this week.
