Wesley's Notes for Matthew 6:33

People's Bible Notes for Matthew 6:33

Mt 6:33 Seek ye first the kingdom of God. The promise is made that if we seek it first, and its righteousness, all earthly wants will be supplied. The condition demands, (1) That we seek the kingdom "first" in point of time. Some propose to secure a competence, and after they have gained it, they will serve God. (2) We must make it "first" in importance. Everything else must give way before its demands. (3) It must be "first" in our affections, have our whole hearts. We must "love the Lord our God with the whole heart" (Mt 22:37). His righteousness. The righteousness that God bestows upon those who are in the Kingdom, Christ's righteousness, the forgiveness of sins in his name.

MockingBird's comment on 2014-03-19 08:54:53:

To be natural with God is to be a unnatural person before the people of the world To be unnatural with God is to be as natural as the people in the world is To seek God as I see it is to search for His will and I can only find it in the Word of God To do His will which is His righteousness is to be a doer of His word We can seek God by prayer also I do my part and God will do His part I love the word of God I cannot do without His word at al l It is hard for me to imagine myself without His word I want His word before my eyes continually I want to walk so as to please Him Praise God Forever more

This God is a big God


Chanda Harry's comment on 2014-02-10 23:12:57:

Seeking the kingdom of God and His righteousness means submitting to the authority of God Allowing Jesus Christ to reign in our hearts when we take care of God s business He too will take care of all our needs


Carol Wessels's comment on 2014-01-15 16:23:22:

The lord gave me this scripture a long time ago. For many months I asked him what was his righteousness. He revealed to me that his righteousness is Jesus - so first seek Jesus and then all things will be added unto you

Our God is the key of everything just do what God want you will see how Big God is


Shay's comment on 2013-12-09 08:55:11:

This means putting Jehovah's standard of what is right and what is wrong ahead of human norms. Even when the majority of people are doing what God disapproves of.


Sharon's comment on 2013-12-07 17:09:15:

This is Literal... seek the literal kingdom in these last days... where they keep true worship. And secondly there is a sanctuary in Heaven operating right now where Yashua (Jesus) is interceding on your behalf. So to get right with him,,, or become one with him... have your sins blotted out in the sanctuary that is operating right now in Heaven. So find his Kingdom and do his righteousness. Asking forgiveness daily going before the throne.


Sharon's comment on 2013-12-07 17:02:31:

this is Literal: there is a Kingdom to rise up in these Last Days that we are living in right now. And there is a Sanctuary in Heaven that operates right now... with Yashua interceding on your behalf... that is how you become righteous. So find the real kingdom and get right through the sanctuary system. This is what this literally means.


Carol's comment on 2013-12-06 03:50:46:

We as children of GOD look to HIM for all things. Follow after HIM imitate our FATHER. Desire to do as HE does. Love HIM with all our heart mind soul and strength. And HE like a loving FATHER delights to see HIS children following in HIS steps;embraces them cares for them and supplies their every need.


Tammi T.'s comment on 2013-11-07 04:02:45:

"Seek ye first, the Kingdom Of God..." I believe He is saying BEFORE you DO anything, confer with Him first. Remember He is our GUIDE. "And His righteousness..." Doing what He would DO, "And all these things shall be added to you..." He shall give you your food, water, clothing, etc. He clothes the grass and feeds it, and His people are worth more to Him than grass. He takes care of His people completely when His people faithfully put Him first.


Bashorun Michael's comment on 2013-11-06 10:24:31:

It is a non negotiable facts to every Christian believer that seeking the kingdom first will open the doors to every desired knowledge,be it it spiritual or the secular knowledge.

..from matthew 6:33
By keeping and by following His commandsments is a very important thing especially when we spread His word to those unbelevers..thank you Lord Jesus..


Olajoju Temitope Joseph's comment on 2013-09-21 10:21:01:

This is the principle of Mattew 6:33. The moment we seek or look first after the kingdom of God; He 'Jesus' will cause everything needed to search and find us.


Kumbukani's comment on 2013-09-14 01:10:50:

We always end up crying if our plans and programs go failing. This is most especially because we do not put God first in those plans. I'm sure He will not ignore us if we consider Him the priority.


Gbemiga's comment on 2013-08-17 18:19:23:

One of the greatest weaPon of the Devil is fear and anxiety. But as a true believer we must understand d fundamental principle of God for our life. God is our father and he totally own us. The bible recorded it that all God created is good. Believe me or not you are part of God creation and he as created you for a purpose and he has naturally endowed us with everything which we need. But to have a life fulfiled live we must remember GOD DEMAND FROM US AND THAT IS GOD KINGDOM AND RIGHTHEOUSNESS. Jesus was very clever enough to have understand this, when satan showed him all the world and ask him to worship him, so that he casted away servant of God will give to d Son is rightful heritage without d consent of the father. GOd owns everything aLl but we have got to understand his demands from us as well. Thanks for reading.


Wumi's comment on 2013-08-17 15:43:01:

It is very powerfull words, Jesus new already that we are in the world where people will never get contented or satisfy with whatever what they have, people will keep on pulse after material thing rathan than spitual things, seeking the kingdom of God and his righteousness first will help us to focus on God only and forget all other things that may be content with our spirit mind.
