THE HUMBLE KING

Christmas is coming.  Christmas is coming!  Never before in this sin-soaked world are we in need of a Savior.

Our leaders are far from humble.  Unfortunately their pride and woke philosophies are taking our nation on a dangerous path……further and further away from GOD.  And the further we move in this wrong direction, the further our society falls into sin and evil. 

Those who have been saved know that the KING OF THE UNIVERSE, JESUS CHRIST, died on the Cross to atone for our sins.  HE came down from heaven to save humanity, born in a humble stable that was in no way fit for a true KING.

WISE MEN STILL SEEK HIM.

Wise men have been seeking HIM since long ago…….

MATTHEW 2: 1-2  “AFTER JESUS WAS BORN IN BETHLEHEM OF JUDEA IN THE DAYS OF KING HEROD, WISE MEN FROM THE EAST ARRIVED IN JERUSALEM SAYING, “WHERE IS HE WHO HAS BEEN BORN KING OF THE JEWS?  FOR WE SAW HIS STAR AT ITS RISING AND HAVE COME TO WORSHIP HIM.”

These very wise men brought gifts fit for a KING:  gold, frankincense, and myrrh.  They followed GOD’S special star to where JESUS lay and when they saw HIM they were overjoyed and fell down on their knees to worship HIM.  The wise men were seeking men…….

WISE MEN SEEK AND FIND A HUMBLE KING.

Only a humble King is worthy of all our worship and praise.  Only the KING of all Creation would die a humble death on a tree between two criminals on either side of HIM.  And only a humble KING would remember to take with HIM a sinner, forgiven, because of his belief in the ONE headed for paradise.

WE WHO ARE WISE ARE DRAWN TO A HUMBLE KING WHO WILL ONE DAY RETURN AS A WARRIOR KING!

The awe felt by the wise men so long ago, still has continued through thousands of generations until today.  A breath of worship fitting only for a KING.  And oh what a warrior KING HE will be on the day of HIS triumphal return!

 

Oh how we have learned through the ages what this truly HUMBLE KING did for us!  HIS humility and grace for us never has run out!  It is timeless and immeasurable.  JESUS is the only KING whose robe is pure humility.

1 PETER 5: 5  “CLOTHE YOURSELVES, ALL OF YOU, WITH HUMILITY TOWARD ONE ANOTHER, FOR “GOD OPPOSES THE PROUD BUT GIVES GRACE TO THE HUMBLE.”

Imagine our world today if we were all clothed in humility rather than self-seeking pride!  Until now only JESUS has shown us what humility looks like.  And we can learn from HIM.  He is the humble KING, the Son of GOD, the Prince of Peace, the True Vine, the Alpha and Omega, the Bright Morning Star and the Great I AM. 

Only JESUS is humble and Holy.  HE is the Great Savior and the Light of the World.  Make a special place for HIM this Christmas in your heart.  Fall on your knees, learn from HIM and worship HIM in humility.   But don’t forget to place HIM where HE belongs…….. as the ONE and ONLY HUMBLE KING, JESUS CHRIST the KING of KINGS!

REVELATION 19:16  “ON HIS ROBE AND ON HIS THIGH HE HAS THIS NAME WRITTEN:  KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.”

  1. It’s an amazing picture, and seems a contradiction, this concept of God Almighty Who requires us to worship Him, and the humble servant called Jesus. We can see in God’s Son all the qualities of God, Himself. And, just as when He was alive in the flesh, and, “He hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see Him, there is no beauty that we should desire Him,” we cannot desire or worship Him without His own touch in our hearts, that quickening only He can bestow.
