Today Reminder - 02 October 2013 (Day 2 - Living in the Kingdom)

A reminder for today
Rehoboam appointed Maacah's son Abijah as leader among the princes, making it clear that he would be the next king. (2 Chronicles 11:22)

How are you today my fellow follower of Jesus our King? In our journey on living in the kingdom I would like to look at the role of a king today and who is our king of kings.

A king is a male sovereign prince who is the official ruler of an independent state (Collins). A King is the title given to the head of a monarch, a supreme ruler, a male sovereign who holds by life tenure and usually by hereditary right is the chief authority over a country and people. The role of a king is to rule over the kingdom. A king has an absolute authority in a kingdom and is mainly the supreme authority within the kingdom.

Now let us look at our king. Jesus came and told his disciples, "I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. (Matthew 28:18) After Jesus defeated death and carried our sins on the cross, God gave Him all authority over heaven and earth. Jesus is the King of Kings and as a Christian we are subject to the rule of our Kings Jesus Christ.

Fundamentally, the idea of Jesus being King of kings and Lord of lords means that there is no higher authority. His reign over all things is absolute and inviolable. Now he is far above any ruler or authority or power or leader or anything else—not only in this world but also in the world to come. God has put all things under the authority of Christ and has made him head over all things for the benefit of the church. And the church is his body; it is made full and complete by Christ, who fills all things everywhere with himself. (Ephesians 1:21-23).

My dear friend, let us follow our King and let us align our lives to the rule and authority of our King Jesus so that His glory will reflect in all that we are and in all that we do. 

Have and awesome day dear friend of Jesus
