I'm glad we have England and some other nations who still have kings, because that's about the only way we can experience it in the here and now. Can we say Will and Kate? Man, what majesty! What ceremony! I loved every minute of it.
Every time I watch something like that, I can't help but think of my own King, Jesus. We think Will and Kate had ceremony and such? Jesus is Lord of all and King of all kings. I don't think we can truly imagine what it is going to be like to be in the presence of this king until we get there. The glory we are going to behold will send us to our knees, worshiping, singing, praising!
I think of the throne, the crown, the angels. The celebrations that will go on and on for eternity. My heart soars with hope and love for Him.
Here on earth, though we can't see it now, we must remember it is there and declare our complete loyalty and all our efforts to the king. We were made to bend our knee and worship someone. The devil offers many choices, but there is only One who is worthy of our complete loyalty and affection. He is trustworthy, true, kind, full of justice and peace. The list goes on. The point is that He is the only perfect king.
Like the magi, let's bring our gifts and give our lives to Him.
