Day 14: Praise The King — Constructive Thoughts

Apr 11 2020

I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honour at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms. Now he is far above any ruler or authority or power or leader or anything else—not only in this world but also in the world to come. — Ephesians 1:18-21

Here is the main point: We have a High Priest who sat down in the place of honour beside the throne of the majestic God in heaven. There he ministers in the heavenly Tabernacle, the true place of worship that was built by the Lord and not by human hands. — Hebrews 8:1-2

 

Thought
When Jesus was raised from the dead, he then ascended into the sky and sat on the throne in heaven, where he still sits today. 

The throne represents ultimate power and authority. This means that all power and authority in heaven and on earth belongs to Jesus (Matthew 28:18-20). 

In the New Testament, John calls Jesus “The King of Kings” (Revelation 19:16). It is time to remember where our ultimate authority comes from. Not a virus, a friend, a job or even church but the One True King. 

News flash: Jesus is still ruling and reigning. 

Action
God is described as our Father and our friend in scripture, but He is also our king. Today and as we celebrate Resurrection Sunday praise The King. Whether it’s playing some worship music, singing, praying or creating something, let’s worship The King through the trial no matter how hard or unnatural it may feel. Jesus is risen from the dead and He forever reigns!
