I Love the Monarchy of Jesus

Nancy Dorner

READ : Luke 2:8-15

“And there was a great host of angels praising God and singing joy to the world.”

“Joy to the world, the Lord is come; let earth receive her king!” And what a king he is, this King of Glory! He makes no harsh demands upon us. He invites us to worship him. Anyone who is looking for a perfect ruler, counselor and friend recognizes Jesus is that person, based on his words and his acts. He is no self-serving, manipulative, malicious dictator. He rules by the laws of love. Life with such a magistrate is heaven. People who learn to love him become citizens of his kingdom. Eventually every knee will bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord! (Phil. 2:10). But we are not there yet.

What can we do to hasten that blessed day? We can share our joy with everyone we meet! We can spotlight the Savior on whom God’s favor rests.

I consider it a privilege to belong to the King of Glory! What joy I find in spreading his Good News to a hurting, hateful world: God loves you.

Merry Christmas to you and yours this season and blessings without end.


Father, empower us to spread the good news of King Jesus not just today, but every day. Amen.
