Sunday Rest and Reflection:King Jesus!
Greetings on this Resurrection morning! Christ the Lord is risen indeed! We are so blessed to have a living Savior who ever lives and promises to come back and take us to Himself! The grave could not hold Him and Satan was stripped by Him of the keys of death and hell! The curtain was torn from top to bottom and all who believe on Jesus Christ have access into the throne room of God where Jesus is seated at the Father’s right hand.
Jesus Christ is the King of Peace! Like Solomon of old, He is a the wisest King who ever lived. His manifold wisdom was displayed at the cross where He offered Himself to make peace with God the Father for our sins. Isaiah named Him the Wonderful Counselor, everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace. (Isaiah 9:6) We now have peace with God through Jesus Christ!
Jesus Christ is the King of Love! Greater love has no man than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. Jesus Christ laid His life down for us, His friends! His love provided what we really needed to give us eternal life! His love was demonstrated in perfect obedience to the Father. His love reaches out to the whole world of lost humanity and draws each person who will respond to saving faith!
Jesus Christ is the King of Kings! There have been many kings over the ages. Scripture records many kings of Israel and Judah. All of them died; some were great and others were evil. Jesus Christ is the King Eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God! He was and is perfectly righteous and holy. He is alive forever and ruling with justice and mercy. His throne endures forever and His rule will cover all time, space, and matter and every creature that He created!
May the King of Kings grant you His peace and love as you rest in Him this resurrection day!
In His Love, Pastor John
