Something to think about.

5 “Behold, the days are coming, declares the Lord, when I will raise up for David a righteous Branch, and he shall reign as king and deal wisely, and shall execute justice and righteousness in the land. Jeremiah 23:5 (ESV)

Jeremiah is referring to Jesus in this passage but what does the word “King” mean context to Christ. The synonyms are ruler, sovereign, monarch, emperor, prince, potentate, Lord and yet in reference to Christ these synonyms are not enough. He is so much more He is the meaning and purpose of our lives He is the reward. He is the last word He is the first word. He is our very hope and at the same time the fulfillment of our hope. He is our security our love. In him, we find the reason we live. He is our very life He is our eternity. He is justice. He is King, and He is sovereign. He is worthy of our worship and praise he is God. With all we try to describe Him He lives outside the walls of our invention. He always has been more than we can fully comprehend. He is our King and we are His willing subjects.


About Ruben

I am the owner of a custom furniture shop in Orlando, Florida. I had a heart attack back in 2010. As a result of complications from the heart attack I almost died . The road to recovery took about eighteen months and even now I still have issues to deal with. As a result of almost dying many things have changed. Most notably my concept of time. By that I mean that I am acutely aware of my mortality, not morbidly but realistically. Before the heart attack I thought I would make it to 70's, 80'S or as my mother into 90's but now I realize everyday is a gift. I don't take it for granted. That is why I write I have something to say and I want to say it, before I can't say it anymore.
