Throughout the months of November and December 2019 I turned my morning walking hours into the times of reflection and prayer. My thoughts were focused on the coming year (2020), its challenges, and my own journey with the Lord in the coming year and beyond. There was one theme that was always coming to the forefront of my reflection times – His Kingdom First. We live in a spiritually and morally confused and confusing world; the world increasingly cynical about the Gospel of Christ, and ignorant about what the Kingdom of God is all about. Even worse, we Christians in the West seem to be increasingly uncertain about how does the Gospel of Christ make sense in the world of conflicting voices and overturned values? It is for those reasons and more that I have decided to be committed in 2020 to seeking “His kingdom first” and ahead of all other priorities and challenges of the day. Should you wish to do so I would welcome you, my friends who truly desire to seek the Kingdom of Christ as the value of your uttermost importance, to journey together with me. So, let’s reason together in the presence of an audience of one.
