You have to hunger and thirst for righteousness. You have to have faith, you have to have hope that if you live your life by the blueprint of the Gospel, God will take care of the rest. He says Don’t worry what you’re going to eat or what you’re going to wear. But by take care of I don’t mean protect from all harm. He himself was hardly protected from all harm. I mean take care of in the sense that your enemies may kill you but your life will bear fruit. Your life will go toward the building of the Kingdom. That’s the goal for the authentic follower of Christ. To go toward the building of God. He who saves his life will lose it, but he who loses his life for my sake will find it. Your goal can’t be power, property, prestige, security. That’s the goal of our government and we are all witnessing where that leads.
