King of Glory

Let us never forget in our praise that God is the King of Kings, the Lord of Lords. He is the King of Glory and His majesty reign over everything. Not just the earth, but the heavens and over all of time, from the beginning to the end. This song reminds us not only of God’s great glory but that we are commanded to praise Him always and pray without ceasing. When you think of all the wonders of God, it should be a natural response to worship Him. Sometimes we get to a place where we forget to put God first, but setting aside personal time every day to incorporate worship in your life is a sure way to keep Jesus at the forefront.  Psalm 24 says:

“A Psalm of David.
24 The earth is the Lord’s, and all its fullness,
The world and those who dwell therein.
2 For He has founded it upon the seas,
And established it upon the [a]waters.

3 Who may ascend into the hill of the Lord?
Or who may stand in His holy place?
4 He who has clean hands and a pure heart,
Who has not lifted up his soul to an idol,
Nor sworn deceitfully.
5 He shall receive blessing from the Lord,
And righteousness from the God of his salvation.
6 This is Jacob, the generation of those who seek Him,
Who seek Your face. Selah

7 Lift up your heads, O you gates!
And be lifted up, you everlasting doors!
And the King of glory shall come in.
8 Who is this King of glory?
The Lord strong and mighty,
The Lord mighty in battle.
9 Lift up your heads, O you gates!
Lift up, you everlasting doors!
And the King of glory shall come in.
10 Who is this King of glory?
The Lord of hosts,
He is the King of glory. Selah”

David entreats us to remember that it is he who has clean hands and pure heart, who is not worshipping an idol in God’s place, that is the man who shall ascend to the throne with Jesus. Don’t you want to be in that place? Don’t you want to be of Jacob’s generation? Then let us never forget who God is and always put the King of Glory first. Amen.

THE RIVER WALK

May your ways be known throughout the earth, your saving power among people everywhere. May the nations praise you, O God. Yes, may all the nations praise you. (Psalm 67:2-3)

Relate: On March 1, more than a hundred sixty years ago a young man named Hudson stepped off the Dumfries and onto Chinese soil. For over a year he toured the Shanghai area over and over again trying to preach the gospel to little avail. He then made a radical (at that time) decision to start wearing Chinese clothing and shave everything except the queue (pigtail). Basically this Englishman chose to become Chinese and once he did so, doors and arms were opened wide to him and he began to see a great move of God. The organization he started, China Inland Mission was directly responsible for eighteen thousand converts, starting 175 schools and raising…

Yes, you will be enriched in every way so that you can always be generous. And when we take your gifts to those who need them, they will thank God. (2 Corinthians 9:11)

Relate: Take all the money I have made this year. Add a few zeros to the end. Then double it a few times. I will almost have enough money to buy that car pictured above. Almost. I do not know about this year, but the Koenigsegg Trevita was rated the most expensive street legal car on the market in 2015. In addition to all the other specifications that go into the making of ridiculously expensive cars, like 1,000+ horsepower, this car is painted with diamonds. No, I’m serious. Apparently they have mixed diamond dust into the paint that makes this car’s outer coat. On the…
