PURSUIT OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD

Why did Jesus always explain the Kingdom of God in metaphors? Why didnít he explain in simple, easy-to-understand terns, the full concept of the Kingdom of God?

It was as if Jesus deliberately kept the secrets of the Kingdom for those who were his own Ė as if the secrets of the Kingdom were reserved for its citizens who had made a commitment in their heart to follow the King.

God wanted the faithful and the diligent to know him intimately. He wanted to reveal himself to people who took time out to seek him and to know his heart Ė those who would seek to dwell in his secret place. (PS 91).

Jesus himself taught his disciples not to throw pearls before swine or they will trample it and then come after you.

The kingdom of God is the mother of all pearls. It is that supreme pearl for which the seeker of pearls sold all the others he had found to purchase that One. It is the treasure hidden in a field for which the treasure seeker sold all the other treasures he had found to secure One. Knowledge of the Kingdom of God is precious; it is reserved for those who are truly in search of the King

God knows how our hearts work; he knows how lightly and carelessly we regard those things that come easily to us. He understands the spirit of inquiry which he has placed within man. He understands manís desire to be challenged and to pursue that which seems out of his grasp - that which stretches him to his very limit.

Such is the pursuit of the Kingdom of God. It will take man his whole life time and more because the Kingdom of God is unfathomable and inexhaustible. It is eternal and infinite while the mind of man is finite.

That is why in order to begin to understand the Kingdom of God man has to devote his entire being - his body, mind and spirit to its pursuit. It is written that anyone who enters and turns back is not worthy of the Kingdom of God. The pursuit of Him and his Kingdom must come before husband, wife, mother, father, children and all those who might be dear and precious to you.

Only in such determined pursuit of God and his Kingdom, will any man ever begin to have any kind of true intimacy with God and begin to understand his heart and his ways. And in our sincere pursuit of him he in turn will look after us and our own and give back to us those things that he knows will fulfill us and thus demonstrate the goodness of the King whom we serve.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
