Attending Evensong at Westminster Abbey immediately following a service where the Royal family were present gave me some wonderful thoughts to ponder:
 At the foot of the cross - where everyone comes to Jesus Christ - the ground is level.
No royalty or commoners...no titles...no wealth or poverty... everyone is equal before
Him. How grateful I am that everyone has the opportunity to come to Him and
receive His gift of salvation. [Romans 10:13]
 From a human perspective, very few are born into royalty. No amount of wishing
will make it a reality. But from a spiritual perspective, I am a child of THE KING!
Through Jesus' atonement, I've been adopted into Heavenly royalty. [1 John 3:1]
 Historic London, and Westminster Abbey itself, is a huge reminder of the mortality
of earthly kings and queens - and all mankind for that matter. London has statues and
paintings of Charles II, Henry VIII, Queen Victoria, and other monarchs to perpetuate
their memory and significance to the country, which is as it should be. I thoroughly
enjoyed learning about them and blogging about them, but the fact remains they died,
and their reign ended.
The great news is the Heavenly King, the King of kings, is eternal. The tomb could
not hold Him. He is Alpha and Omega - no beginning and no ending. He is the I AM,
the Universal Sovereign. Best of all, He knows me by name. Scripture says He knew
me before I was formed in my mother's womb. No mortal king or queen has those
super-natural powers. I've gratefully given Him my allegiance, and proclaim Him as
my Sovereign Lord!
May God bless your week!
