Having the position of being a king carries with it great power and responsibility. The power to alter the course of a nation or kingdom and the responsibility to rule and reign for the good of your people. A good king and it goes well with your people, a bad king it goes pear-shaped for your people. God has given us a king that is perfect in every way, both in power and responsibility.
John 19:18–20 (ESV) — 18 There they crucified him, and with him two others, one on either side, and Jesus between them. 19 Pilate also wrote an inscription and put it on the cross. It read, “Jesus of Nazareth, the King of the Jews.” 20 Many of the Jews read this inscription, for the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city, and it was written in Aramaic, in Latin, and in Greek.
Jesus, God’s true King responsibly used all His power to rescue and save us by defeating sin and death in our place. Let’s tell the world with love and courage, Jesus is our gracious King.
