Philippians 2:21 (NLT)

All the others care only for themselves and not for what matters to Jesus Christ.

Philippians 2:33 (KJV)

For all seek their own, not the things which are Jesus Christ’s.

And when the word of God
Becomes our true delight.
And prayer becomes the earthly instrument
To receive the Heavenly breath we need.
And Christ becomes our everything
And His light,
His life,
His strength,
His glory,
Becomes the Bread of Life
That sustains our every need.

It is at this very moment
That we become
More and More like Christ
And less like self.

For rather than seeking the earthly, crumbling, tumbling
Kingdom of self deification and selfish ambition,
We at this moment are seeking the divine interests
Of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ
And furthering the eternal, immortal,
Kingdom of un-ending celestial beauty and light
That can never be shaken.

For our Triune God,
The God of Jacob,
The prophets,
The God of all people
Of all nations,
Is our unbreakable,
From Now
Until eternity!

May we forever
Passionately seek
His Kingdom
And not our own!
