King Jesus

   Posted by: jmueller

Does Jesus want to be called King?

I searched the scriptures for references to ‘King’ and gleaned the portions of scripture that appear to answer this question.  This is by no means an exhaustive list.

  • John 18:36-38
  • John 1:48-50
  • Luke 19:37-39
  • Matthew 25:39-41
  • John 12:14-16
  • Luke 23:1-3
  • Revelation 19:15-17
  • 1 Timothy 1:17
  • Revelation 17:13-15
  • Revelation 15:2-4
  • Matthew 3:1-3
  • Matthew 4:16-18
  • Matthew 6:33
  • Matthew 7:21
  • Luke 1:32-34
  • Luke 23:42
  • Ephesians 5:5
  • Colossians 1:12-14
  • 2 Timothy 4:1
  • Revelation 5:10
  • Revelation 11:15

In looking at this, there are a lot of places in scripture that talk about the kingdom of God.  Jesus is also said to be coming into His kingdom.  Every kingdom has a king, so by reasoning this out, Jesus must be King of His kingdom.

And even the title that was given Him is the Christ.  That title alone is from the Greek and means ‘anointed’.  A king is anointed as the ruler.

I believe that the answer is a resounding YES!  I think it the correct way to think of Him.  The ruler of my heart and soul.  The ruler of the entire world.  I long to bow before Him and kiss His feet and worship Him in the way that he deserves, because in this sinful, fallen state, I will never be able to give him the praise and worship He deserves.

Verse of the Day

   Posted by: jmueller Tags:

I came across this morning:

Job 28:20-28 (ESV)

20 “From where, then, does wisdom come?
And where is the place of understanding?
21 It is hidden from the eyes of all living
and concealed from the birds of the air.
22 Abaddon and Death say,
‘We have heard a rumor of it with our ears.’

23 “God understands the way to it,
and he knows its place.
24 For he looks to the ends of the earth
and sees everything under the heavens.
25 When he gave to the wind its weight
and apportioned the waters by measure,
26 when he made a decree for the rain
and a way for the lightning of the thunder,
27 then he saw it and declared it;
he established it, and searched it out.
28 And he said to man,
‘Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom,
and to turn away from evil is understanding.’”
