Born King

Jesus is the only person born as a king in the history of mankind. All other individuals who became kings or queens were first born as either princes or princesses. They were heirs who inherited the throne. Not Jesus. He was already a king at birth.

 

Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,

Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? For we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him. Matthew 2:1& 2

 

The kingship of Jesus therefore, is far from being a subject of debate. It is settled. The question though is – Is He King over your life? Have you put the government and leadership of your life upon His shoulders? Is He reigning as the wonderful, counsellor, everlasting father and prince of peace in all that concerns you?

 

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6

 

Jesus came to establish his throne in the hearts of men on a personal level. He was born with the government upon his shoulders so that all other systems of governance are subject to Him.

 

Christmas is the season when we remember that a son that was king came in lowly form in order to give the world a chance at salvation – a state of completeness. He is Lord. He is the King. I hope you make Him King over all that concerns you and show others the way to do so too. Wise men still seek Jesus.

 

Merry Christmas!
