Have you ever met a president—of anything? I bet you have.
Maybe you are the president of something.
A president or king demands respect, some more than others.
A king has authority.
A king has subjects under him who are subject to him.
A king is royalty, is important, is someone who is noticed.
The amount of respect and authority a king has depends upon what he is king of. King of the hill, King of the jungle–the respect or significance depends upon which hill and which jungle he is king of.
So combine all the kings, presidents, and rulers of anything—islands, countries, companies, and PTA organizations. Think about them all together in one place. That is a lot of authority and power.
Now, think about THE ONE who is above them all–Jesus, the King of all Kings. Jesus is the ultimate authority; the ultimate power; the One who commands the ultimate respect.
Now, consider that this Ultimate One adores you. Wow!
If I told you that I knew the king of an earthly country, that would make me something, wouldn’t it? You would think it was a no-brainer if I kept my appointments with that king and made time for him.
But what about the KING of KINGS, the lover of my soul, Jesus?
What about Him?
Isn’t it a no-brainer that I should make time for and spend time with that KING?
Maybe we just forget Who He Is.
Because if we really remembered, we would make the time, wouldn’t we? We would understand the authority and the power and we would want to be near it.
It’s a no-brainer.
“They will make war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will overcome them because he is Lord of lords and King of kings—and with him will be his called, chosen and faithful followers.” Revelation 17:14
