Tuesday’s Time

For God is my King of old, working salvation in the midst of the earth (Psalm 74:12).
Peter asked of Jesus Christ: Lord, to whom shall we go (John 6:68)? Many of the disciples had turned away from Christ and Jesus asked the apostles if they would also leave. Peter’s response was a rhetorical question, because Jesus is the only one who can provide salvation. The psalmist acknowledged the fact that God was his King and seemingly had been his King throughout his life.
Solomon made the following challenge: Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth (Ecclesiastes 12:1). God should be our King when we are young, when we are middle aged and when we are old. Our faith should grow stronger and deeper as we grow older in Christ.
God is not the King chosen by the world; God is not the King chosen by Satan; God is not the King chosen by false teachers and God is not the King chosen by lukewarm Christians.God is the only King who truly loves the world; God is the only King who truly shows mercy and grace; God is the only King who can truly forgive sins; God is the only King who offers an eternal home and God is the only King who can deliver us from the bondage of Satan.
Perhaps, we are often asked, why we serve God? The better question to be asked is, Why would we not serve God? God is worthy of our service, love, honor and praise. God is worthy because He is eternal, all-knowing, all-powerful, ever-present and He loves us; God is worthy because He desires us to live with Him forever; God is worthy because He has made it possible for us to live with Him forever; God is worthy because He makes it possible for us to know true love.
From this day forward, let us make sure that God is King in our lives.
