“Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.”
(Matthew 6:33 NLT)

We all have things that we want in life. Some want a higher paying job or to save money for retirement. Others want to have more free time or to improve their physical appearance. Usually what we desire to have and what we actually need are two different things. God has promised to supply all of our needs but all that we truly need is Jesus. According to the Fivefold Gospel Jesus is our Savior, Sanctifier, Healer, Spirit Baptizer, and coming King. Jesus first saves us from our sin. Then he gives us the Holy Spirit who cleans up the mess and heals us from the affects of sin. He does this all to prepare a people for his return when he will reign as King of kings. God gives us these Fivefold gifts to meet his needs and what God needs is for us to embody his kingdom in the material world as we lovingly meet the needs of others.
