Who Is Your King?

You have a king who rules your life. Whether you have identified that king or not, someone or something has filled the decision-making place in your heart. Most people enthrone themselves. But there are some who let another person or a dream or an idea call the shots for them. Sometimes people even have a king in their lives which they would rather depose, but they feel incapable of making a change. Who rules in your life?

One Sunday about 30 AD, Jesus of Nazareth entered the city of Jerusalem on a donkey. He did that on purpose. He was fulfilling a prediction made hundreds of years earlier by an Israelite prophet that the Messiah, the promised Savior King would do just that. Everyone present caught on immediately and they responded with shouts of enthusiastic support.

That support, however, did not last long. Five days later Jesus was crucified. But it was on the cross that he demonstrated the power and extent of his kingly rule. He did what no political king could – he destroyed evil and death. And his resurrection from the dead confirmed once and for all his rightful rule in the lives of every human being. Yet, he will not rule by force – only by invitation.

Join us for one of our weekend services. Invite King Jesus to rule in your heart!

Saturday evening – 6:00 pm
