An Easter Revelation: The Servant King - April 2021

Have you ever considered that a ‘good’ king is a servant to his people?  He holds his power and position for the betterment of his subjects.  He is not above the laws he makes; he is subject to them.  He always has his nation’s best interests at heart and is willing to lay down his life for his people. 

Jesus Christ is known as the Lord of Lords and King of Kings.  As God, Jesus is Sovereign over all His creation, yet still He serves mankind daily with oxygen, gravity and sunshine. 

As man, Jesus is subject to all the laws that God has decreed (the many commandments).  He is also subject to all the laws of perfection.  He must always be righteous, fair, truthful and sinless. Hebrews 4:15 states: For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weakness, but in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin.

Furthermore as with any good king, Christ has shown He is willing to lay down His life for the safety and best interests of His people.   

John 10:11 states: “I am the good shepherd.  The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep.”  Christ went willingly to the cross to pay the penalty of sin, so all who believe in Him may have eternal life.  John 3:16. 

Our Creator, so in love with His Creation, and so that He could continue to have relationship with those He Created, laid down His Life because we messed up and as a result separated ourselves from Him.

Now through not only His death, but His Resurrection, we are restored back into that place where we can have intimate relationship with Him, as was His purpose in Creating us in the beginning. 

May you ponder this amazing truth this Easter.
