Messiah—Branch—King


 

In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS,” Jeremiah 23:6.

 

Harry S. Truman said, “In periods where there is no leadership, society stands still. Progress occurs when courageous, skillful leaders seize the opportunity to change things for the better.” There is something about the heart of man that longs for clear and decisive leadership. Without godly leadership, chaos and sinfulness reign. Unfortunately, when there have been lapses in godly leadership, history teaches us that society may desire the wrong person to lead them.

 

The ultimate answer to this problem of leadership is Christ. Yes, there is no authority except that which God grants (Rom. 13:1), but we must be clear:  there is no leader like Jesus Christ. He is the promised Messiah and He has every human right to lead, coming from the line of David. When He returns and reigns in power, every knee will bow and every tongue will proclaim that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God (Phil. 2:9-11). When Jesus returns, we will not worry any longer about corruption in positions of authority, we will not argue about what is best for our nation, and we will not be concerned with making sure the oppressed receive justice. But one of the most amazing aspects of the rule of Christ is this. He can be your leader, your sovereign, right now.

 

 

JUST A THOUGHT

 

Will you serve Christ as king today?
