The peace of God is essential, along with prayer and fasting in the kindgom lifestyle. All in all, the description of the kingdom lifestyle is a personal relationship with God and the love for others. It is the ulimate way of living with Jesus Christ and fulfilling the mission commanded, that is, making disciples for Jesus Christ. It is the “dos” that need to be done in obedience to God, by faith.

Missions exists only because worship does not because of the fall, missions must take place in order to share the love of Christ with those who are distanced from him by sin, and show them that a repairing of this separation is possible in Christ alone. Missions can work as an aid to worship, in that it brings glory to God by introducing the nations to him and hope that they in turn will worship Christ with us and follow after him. In this way, missions is reliant on worship as its fuel, because without missions, worship is reduced to a clanging of symbols and is only a ramble. The desire to follow after God with one’s whole heart and to glorify him is the true motivation for Christians to pursue missions in their life. Selfish ambition towards missions may be used by God but it will not be blessed by Him.
The purpose of life is found in our relationship with God and others during this lifetime.

This all can be accomplished because the Gospel provides us confidence because it call us to participate in the will of God. Newbigin concludes with this, “He knows what he is doing, and we can trust him. Such experience is a summons to self-searching, to repentance, and to fresh commitment.

This passage is an important part of Matthew, as it provides an explanation as to what people's motivations behind their actions should be. Striving to reach the Kingdom of God is what should be motivating people. People should not worry about what tomorrow will bring and start living life for what they have. Even people of biblical times need relief from the everyday hassles and have the time to commune with God and their faith.
In conclusion, “Preaching is divine activity wherein the word of God is proclaimed or announced on contemporary issues for and ultimate response to our God.” It is the seriousness of preaching that goes forth among God’s people, to invoke a call for a response to the good news of God. Understanding the meaning and task of preaching frees one to be used as a vessel that God uses to impart change into the lives of his people.
