Hungering for a Right Relationship

hunger4Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, For they shall be filled. (Mat 5:6 NKJ)

“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. (Mat 6:33 NKJ)

How many conflicts, issues or problems are there in the world today?  Too many! But there is a simple solution—we just need to bring everything into right relationship with God. I often get asked whether I’m a Republican or a Democrat,  I reply that I’m neither, as a citizen of God’s Kingdom  I follow Kingdom principles.  Isn’t that what we’ve been praying in the Lord’s Prayer for years—“Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven?”  Our passion, craving, hunger, and thirst should be to see those Kingdom principles applied to the world in which we live and to hold those we place in positions of power accountable.  That may sound like a huge task, but if I make that commitment and you make that commitment, then that’s at least two of us committed to making a difference.

Our example always has to be the life of Jesus.  He didn’t have man-made power, position or influence, but he certainly made a difference.
