Jesus – King of Kings

In your Bible: 1 Timothy 6:15,16; Psalm 95:6,7; Romans: 8:32; 2 Peter 1:19.

It’s hard to put the full meaning of Christmas into two paragraphs for a blog. But, Sarah Young in a devotional book Jesus Calling,* gives a poignant account:

I am King of Kings and Lord of lords, dwelling in dazzling bright Light! I am also your Shepherd, Companion, and Friend—the One who never lets go of your hand. Worship Me in My holy Majesty; come close to me, and rest in My Presence. You need Me both as God and as Man. Only My Incarnation on that first long ago Christmas could fulfill your neediness. Since I went to such extreme measures to save you from you sins, you can be assured that I will graciously give you all you need.

Nurture well your trust in Me as Savior, Lord, and Friend. I have held back nothing in my provision for you. I have even deigned to live within you! Rejoice in all that I have done for you, and My Light will shine through you into the world.
