Advise us to Seek the Kingdom God First
Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. Matthew 6:33 (NLT)
Ask, Seek, Find- an effective prayer.
“Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives. Everyone who seeks finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened. Matthew 7:7-8(NLT)
Jesus loves the Children.
But Jesus said, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those like these children.” Matthew 19:14 (NLT)
Jesus reminds us of the Good News.
Then, calling the crowd to join his disciples, he said, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must give up your way, take up your cross, and follow me. If you try to hang on to your Life, you will lose it. But if you give up your Life for my sake and the sake of the Good News, you will save it. And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your soul? Is anything worth more than your soul? Mark 8:34-37(NLT)
Jesus calls for Repentance.
Jesus answered them, “Healthy people don’t need a doctor—sick people do. I have come to call not those who think they are righteous, but those who know they are sinners and must repent.” Luke 5:31-32(NLT)

Two Commandments: Love God and Your Neighbor
Jesus replied, “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment.
