Sermon Outline

6:33 “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”

INTRODUCTION
Q. Are you are seeking first the kingdom of God.

Q. Are you are seeking first God's righteousness for yourself, your family/ church/friends/neighbours/co-workers?

I. IT IS EASY TO PUT GOD'S KINGDOM 2nd
Example of failure: Adam (and Eve) Genesis 3.
The whole of history is a battle to put God's kingdom 1st.

II. IT IS POSSIBLE TO PUT GOD'S KINGDOM 1st
Example of success: Jonathan (and David)
1 Samuel 18:3 And Jonathan made a covenant with David because he loved him as himself. 4 Jonathan took off the robe he was wearing and gave it to David, along with his tunic, and even his sword, his bow and his belt. ...
Follow Jonathan's amazing example, of putting God's king (Jesus) and his kingdom 1st.

III. HOW TO PUT GOD'S KINGDOM 2nd
If we worry about what God is worried about, he will worry about whatever we are worried about.

IV DON'T WASTE YOUR LIFE; PUT GOD'S KINGDOM 1ST
Application: Seeking first God's kingdom is a matter of
being a real ally,
not playing it safe,
making the quest for your righteousness and your group's/family’s righteousness your own,
having something to show for your life, not a list of regrets...
