Stop trying to discover yourself, your definition is in Jesus. The moment you are located in Him, everything else falls into place. Who to marry, where to go, what to do and all of those things aren’t much more important than finding a place in Jesus. Jesus gives meaning to every meaningless life!
:
Isn’t this why Jesus said “seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, every other thing shall be added” (Matthew 6:33). Let me do a little explanation to this the I way I understand it. What does it mean to seek the kingdom and how is every other things added?
:
Jesus is the way and when we say this we don’t imply that Jesus is the way that leads to the Kingdom of God, we imply that Jesus is the way in which we enter and stay in this kingdom. To be in Jesus is to be in the Kingdom and outside Jesus, we are lost! Jesus said in John 14:6 “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” While some translations translate the word as “through” which of course the Greek word used is “dia” which has other meanings though, if we should interpret what Jesus meant here using other places in the Bible, we are sure the King James Bible gives a better rendering. Going further in same portion of the Bible at verse 10 we see Jesus saying “He that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Show us the Father?”
Is that clear now?
:
So we understand that to seek the kingdom is to seek Jesus through whom alone the kingdom can be accessed. Many have sought for Jesus and His righteousness (this means seeking Jesus in the sense of what He came to do), how then is other things added unto them? In Jesus, they got their definition and in Jesus they have received a sense of purpose. We all want to do something with our lives but we truly receive a sense of purpose when we find ourselves in Jesus, we get a better picture why we ought to do what we want to do.
:
This reflects in our relationships, our businesses and so on! The bible says in Ephesians 1:3 “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ.” Where is the blessings with which He has blessed us located in? In Christ of course! I need you to understand this place very well! We have been blessed with all blessings that is available in the heavenly places and the location of these blessings is in Christ! The Greek word used as “heavenly” here is “epouranios” which means “heaven”.
:
This means we aren’t talking about the skies which many also refer to as heaven! The entire earth including the sky was willed to Adam (human kind) but there is something else willed to the New Creature in Christ Jesus and this is all the blessings in heaven! Why? Because our place is in Christ in whom all things consist (Colossians 1:17). When we understand the Greek word in which “consist” was translated from, we will understand that in Christ all things falls into place, in Him all things are set together and exhibited! Now we know that the moment Christ became our place, everything fell into place!
:
Does this mean we shouldn’t desire to do certain works on earth? Does this mean we don’t try finding out areas where we are good in since we don’t discover ourselves except in Christ? No! But discovering areas you are good in doesn’t mean you have discovered yourself because you are not your physical ability, they are just expressions of your physical strength! But when you are located in Christ, even the physical expressions of you begins to fulfill purpose in its true sense!

I started writing as much as I can remember at a very tender age. I wrote down my passions, my fears, my faith and every part of my emotions. The pen and paper was the best way to always express my feeling and creative ability. Secretly, I also wrote my sexual fantasies when I reached puberty and learn at school what sex was and the chemistry occurring in my body. I never had ugly fantasies though because we had good moral upbringing but I was expressing the state of my physical nature on pen and paper. When the Lord took hold of me, everything changed and most times the same way those things I feel starts flowing from my brain down to my fingers and the pen on papers, inspirations from God’s word started flowing that way. Ideas on building great relationships and things that would make life better also flowed with strong base on God’s word. Now you see, I discovered I could write on time but it was until I discovered the real me that my talents starting fulfilling purpose with the spiritual gifts of God in me operating through those talents.
:
I see certain men and women say they would leave their partners if certain amount of money was offered to them to that effect, they say they would marry someone else if money is attached! Look at them closely, they are living for fame and material things, they don’t know their purpose and most times they haven’t sought the kingdom. When you are fitted in Christ, you don’t live for money, it lives for you!
:
You are talented? You possess enviable skills? You’ve discovered the core and extents your physical abilities could go? That’s great but the real you is your Spirit and what a difference it would make when your talent starts working in partnership with your Spirit where all that it is to you is compounded! What a difference it would make when your talent begins to work for purpose and not fame or money…. This is where all things have been added unto you. I have seen a Christian doctor who uses his platform to win souls! He prays for people, lead them to Christ even as he treat them! Some he heals by the power of the Holy Spirit but he is a doctor whom some of his fellow doctors don’t believe in Jesus and they are playing out different scripts.
:
It’s good to be passionate about something, it is better to let your passion drive towards God’s purpose for your life. Your entire being begins to express purpose when you are submitted to God in Jesus by the Holy Spirit. Some of the Apostles were mostly fishers but Jesus changed their course! They started fishing men. Paul was a Pharisee… He had great entrepreneurial skills too but in Jesus things changed! His course changed! I guess you understand it better now when we say “seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness. All other things will be added unto you.” It means all other things shall fall into place because all things consist in Christ.
:
If you are a believer in Christ Jesus, the above verse (Matthew 6:33) isn’t for you anymore because you aren’t seeking anymore. However, it throws light to your present reality! All things has been added unto you! Start manifesting what has been added! The Bible says you ought to work out your salvation which God is already working in you (Philippians 2:13). Let it shine from the inside out!
:
May God honor His word in your life in Jesus name. Amen.
