  • Jesus: Another King
    There is another king.
    Acts 17:7
    Jesus is a King not like any king of this world; He is another kind of King. He never came to rule an earthly kingdom. Why should He want outward obedience as given to the kings of this earth when He can rule inwardly the hearts of people? Earthly kings rule by laws and force. But Jesus rules inwardly by love. Earthly kings want their subjects to do things for them. But Jesus first loved us and died for our salvation; then He gave us all the blessings of Heaven and has given us the privilege of serving Him out of love and obedience.
    Lord, You are my King; I love You because You first loved me. I come to worship You, because You first came to me.
    Jesus is Another King, not like any other king on Earth. Some rule for ego or vanity, and some rule for greed or wealth. Others rule because they carry on the family heritage into which they were born. Jesus rules what He created, because He is God. Jesus rules those whom He redeems, because He is the Savior. Jesus rules what is yielded to Him, because He is the Lord. What will you let Him rule today?
    Jesus, You are my Lord. You are unlike the lords of this world; come take my life. You are my King. You are unlike the rulers of this world; I will gladly let You rule my life. Come sit upon the throne of my heart and rule my life today. Amen.
