The Amazing Love of the King

On Sunday we talked about proclaiming Jesus as the king each and every day with the choices that we make. We also talked about how God helps us do that. We’re not supposed to fight that fight alone.

That should all be set in a backdrop that we DIDN’T get to talk about much.

See what great love the Father has given us that we should be called God’s children ​— ​and we are!  — 1 John 3:1 (CSB)

The truth is that our king loves us and even more so that are his children! To be a son or daughter of the king puts us into such a different position than merely a subject proclaiming their faith.

Following a loving king means that there is connection between us. He is not distant and impersonal but instead he is warm and concerned. He knows and cares about every detail of our lives.

Following a king who is your father means that he passes on his attributes to us. His very Spirit is with us bringing conviction when we sin, comfort when we hurt and strength when we fight.

The love of our father God is… mind boggling!

I pray for you, along with the Apostle Paul:

I pray that you, being rooted and firmly established in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the length and width, height and depth of God’s love, and to know Christ’s love that surpasses knowledge, so that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. — Ephesians 3:17-19 (CSB)

Be filled with all the fullness of God!
