“On his robe and on his thigh, he has this name written:
King of kings and Lord of lords.” Rev. 19:16
I didn’t know anyone in the circle. The leader started the meeting by asking us to give an adjective describing us that starts with the first letter of our first name. I had a white shirt on and had just spilled coffee down the front, so I chose Neat Nancy. Later one of the guys said he saw the coffee spill and wondered why I picked neat as my adjective.
The girl two seats to my right, Kaylin couldn’t think of an adjective. The girl next to me piped up with Kind Kaylin. Then it was the girl sitting next to me turn. Her name was Karyn. She had given her adjective to Kaylin. She solved it by proclaiming she was “Kindest of the kind Karyn.”
Jesus is King of all kings
That reminds me of the title Jesus is given, King of kings. He isn’t just the King – He is the King of kings and Lord of lords. He is the greatest of the great. The title denotes absolute dominion over his realm – in this case, all of creation. When God raised Jesus from the dead, he placed him over all things. (Eph. 1:21-23) In the end, Jesus will reign supreme as King of the entire earth.
What does that mean to me?
Nobody wants to be on the losing team. We know the end of the story and can rest confident that Jesus will reign as King of kings and Lord of lords. Now that’s the team I want to be on!
Jesus is not only King of kings, but he humbled himself and came to earth in the form of a man. He understands me and my struggles. (Phil. 2:5-11) Not only can He relate to me, He has the power to help me in my time of need.
When I am discouraged by life’s challenges, I can turn my focus from what is temporary to what is eternal.
Take a look at this powerful video – it gave me goosebumps.
Thank you, Jesus, for being King of kings and Lord of lords. We worship and adore you. You are magnificent, mighty and all powerful. How humbling that you are loving, kind, and care about every detail of my life. Thank you, Jesus. Thank you for being my king. Amen.
