When I think of the letter k, king is the first word that comes to mind. Attired in royal robes and commanding His subjects is the picture I see of a King. A king governs with power and authority. He’s one who is served and doesn’t entertain the common folk. Instead he dines with other rulers and leading authorities.
Yet I’m reminded how so many people in Bible times missed the King of kings because He didn’t come packaged in the stately garments in which they expected. Rather than glitz and glamour, my King arrived on earth’s scene in a plain and humble manner. He didn’t grow up with a silver spoon in His mouth but as the son of an ordinary carpenter. The kingdom He came to establish was not about lording over others or seeking positions of grandeur. Instead he taught that servanthood is the way to true greatness.
Grateful that He chose to utilize the ordinary, mundane, often-overlooked people in society to advance His Kingdom. Otherwise, there would be no hope for a girl like me. His kingdom is not based on race, age, or economic status but open to all who will believe and confess. Matthew 21:32 John came to show you the right way to live. You did not believe him, but the tax collectors and prostitutes believed him. Even after seeing this, you still refused to change your ways and believe him. Have you accepted the invitation to be a part of the Kingdom? If not, there’s still time left.
