Hymn of the Week

The head that once was crowned with thorns is crowned in glory now;
A royal diadem adorns the mighty victor’s brow.
(Christian Worship: A Lutheran Hymnal - 217, verses 1,2,6)

The King of Kings for You

History is full of them: emperors and kings whose rule and authority were absolute. If you were to go back through the thousands of years of recorded history, you would find that the old saying rings true, “Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely”. There are many examples of such rulers in our world today as well. They thirst for even more power, more influence and more wealth—all at the expense of the people under their tyrannical reign.

So would you like to live under the rule of a king whose power and authority are absolute? “No” might understandably be our initial answer. But consider another king, a king under whose rule we already live.

This King is none other than Jesus, and he is different. His concern isn’t for himself. It’s for us. He set aside his glory as the Son of God and came to earth to save us from sin and death. His head was crowned with thorns, his body nailed to a cross and he suffered the anguish of hell so that all our sins would be forgiven.

And now Jesus sits on the throne in heaven, as the Bible says, “…far above all rule and authority, power and dominion” (Ephesians 1:21). He truly is King of kings and Lord of lords, ruling over everything in this world. Yet he doesn’t rule over us for the sake of his own power or prestige. His concern is still for us. Every event in this world from the great to the small he bends so that they fit with his will to bring his believers to heaven. And so we sing with joy…

Prayer: 

The highest place that heav’n affords is his, is his by right,
The King of kings and Lord of lords and heav’n’s eternal light.

The cross he bore is life and health, though shame and death to him;
His people’s hope, his people’s wealth, their everlasting theme.

From September through December 2014, the Daily Devotions on Thursday and Friday are based on the Word of God expressed in a Christian Hymn selected each week. All devotions in this series are located here.
