To Have One is to Have All And to Lose/Reject One is to Own Nothing


To have One is to have all.

To reject or lost One is to have nothing.

An individual can have many other things except a particular One.

Some others might have just this One and supposedly nothing else.

Consider the church in Laodiceans.

Thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing.”

They have other things except One.

One reckoned them to be “wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked.”  

Let’s get things right.

These other things are needful and necessary.

We basically need these other things.

But the prescribed way of getting them almost effortlessly is by “seeking first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”

It implies that we seek both but in accordance to preferences and importance.

The kingdom and his constituents comes first while other things follow.

Changing the order of importance is like trying hard to catch a thing by holding unto its shadow.

You remember the parable of the Pearl of great value?

 It says “the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls.”

“Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.”

The worth of this one pearl is so priceless that selling all is worth it.

What or who then is this One?

That’s the Lord Jesus Christ.

Let’s consider the story of Lazarus and the rich man.

Lazarus had just one thing that the rich man does not have.

The true worth of what they had in time was not revealed.

Life after revealed who had all in One and who had none in all.

Moreover, we can have One and others and yet have all.

Remember “it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.”

And Jesus looking upon them saith, with men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.”

God can make it very possible to have much of these two in their order of preferences.

When the others seem to cease, earnestly seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness.

All others will be yours as the Lord pleases.

Ensure you don’t lose that One, you might have lost/or can lose many other things.
