Daily Verse: “They will make war on the Lamb, and the Lamb will conquer them, for he is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those with him are called and chosen and faithful.” (Revelation 17:14 ESV)
BASILEUS (935): “As a noun, means “a king” of Christ, as the “King of kings,” Rev. 17:14.”
King of kings.
No one reigns higher than Jesus, Son of God. Understanding how God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit work together requires faith. Hard for me to put in words, but marriage helps me understand some.
Since Ron and I married, we’ve become one with each other and God. Centering our lives around Christ’s teachings bonds Ron and me closer together than anything else, yet at the same time, we still have separate lives.
Each of us has different roles to play. We grow together as we allow our lives to mesh, Ron’s strengths, my weaknesses, and vice versa. God’s sovereignty blends us as we follow His commands.
Putting the King of kings first means doing what He commands, loving God and others. Applying those principles to our life creates healthier relationships and draws people to Christ. Disobedience leads to chaos.
Jesus leads us on a path to righteousness as we follow Him. Each day, Christ gives us the grace we need to love the world and ourselves. Without God’s Son, we couldn’t bond with God as intimately as we do. When Jesus left the earth, His Spirit remained behind to reside within us, guiding our ways.
Loving as God calls us to do, especially in marriage, a relationship like none other, we will gain a glimpse of how the triune God works. But even then, we can’t fully grasp the wonders of the Creator.
King of kings, Lord of all, Jesus died for you. In His embrace, grace and mercy reside, helping us to let go of the past and move forward into the future, knowing God has a magnificent plan for us.
