King Jesus

The Lord will rule forever and always. ~ Exodus 15:18 (CEB)

As Jesus approached the road leading down from the Mount of Olives, the whole throng of his disciples began rejoicing. They praised God with a loud voice because of all the mighty things they had seen. They said, “Blessings on the king who comes in the name of the Lord. Peace in heaven and glory in the highest heavens.” ~ Luke 19:37-38 (CEB)

In Jesus, God comes to start his new (and unique) kingdom.
Jesus, you are the King of kings. Thank you for launching your new kingdom. I confess, though, that I am overly attached to the vision of an earth-based kingdom that can be the source of great justice and service. I know that these are great things but my vision is unrealistic. Help me to adjust my vision so that it fits with your kingdom and your timing. I am going to acknowledge you and your sovereignty alone. Amen.
