Are you a Plowman for the Kingdom of God

 He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord (John 1:23)

Matthew 6:33

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

We must make it first in importance the kingdom of God.

Everything else must give way before its demands; it must be the first priority in one’s life.

It must be first in our affections; the Kingdom must have our whole hearts.

We must love the Lord our God with the whole heart.

Matthew 22:37

Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

Luk 9:59  And he said unto another, Follow me. But he said, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father.

Luk 9:60  Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God.

Luk 9:61  And another also said, Lord, I will follow thee; but let me first go bid them farewell, which are at home at my house.

Luk 9:62  And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.

Look at Verse 62 Again and the words of Jesus said, (And looking back).

Luke 9:62

And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plow, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.

The plowman ought to look before him, on his plough, and the ground he is plowing, or he is not fit to be a plowman; nor will he make proper furrows or roll in the field, or do his work well; and so he that enters upon the Kingdoms work, and looks back, and engages himself in the affairs of the world, who sets his heart on them, and spends his time in them is not fit.

Jesus said that person is not fit for the kingdom of God:

As we seek, Father God and Give Jesus our lives we are like the plowman at work making straight the way of the Lord.

Are you making way for the Lord to work in your life and for the lives of others?

Are you fit for the Kingdom of God?

Would you be called a plowman for the kingdom of God doing his will or are you a ploughman for the kingdom of darkness.

Luke 22:39-46

Thy kingdom come.

Thy will be done.

Thy will be done is a way to say, a way for us to pledge to God, that we will work with God to make the Kingdom of God real in this world with our lives.

It is a promise to God saying, “Your will is my will.”

Thy will, our work, our focus is joined with God’s purpose on this earth.

A pledge to God, I will join my will with yours that your Kingdom might be made real.

Thy Kingdom come.

Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.

May God’s kingdom of loving compassion, justice and mercy be realized here on earth, through your work and mine as we become plowman for the Gospel to be spread through out the Field that many will be saved and set free Amen.

Who is willing to be a plowman for God’s Kingdom?
