Part 4 Where to start seeking the kingdom of God
Rome was not built in a day, but brick by brick. The Kingdom of God is not built in a day, either, but with stone, by stone. The stones of the Kingdom are not piled one upon another, but are a free gatherings of living stones. Those stones of the true followers of Christ form living altars of faith, hope, and charity.
We have been taught many forms of government, but not God’s government. We have been told that the Kingdom is not at hand contrary, to Christ’s words. We are told that our applications and contracts with other governments has nothing to do with our salvation. We may never completely arrive in God’s infinite Kingdom, but it is not about arriving; it is about turning around in repentance and taking the journey. It is about seeking the Kingdom.
And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it. 2 John 1:6
Salvation is, first, about repenting and going another way, God’s way. It is about following after Christ and obeying His commandments because we love Him and the Father who sent Him. It is about seeking Christ in His Kingdom of God, by serving Christ, by feeding His sheep, and loving our neighbor. It is a journey, a path, a way. Each man and woman must decide daily how they will make that journey, working out their own salvation with fear and trembling. That you may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world.1
...The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel. Mark 1:15
