Sunday Reflection...

Attending Evensong at Westminster Abbey immediately following a service where the Royal family were present gave me some wonderful thoughts to ponder:

[1]  At the foot of the cross - where everyone comes to Jesus Christ - the ground is level. 
       No royalty or 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]

[2]  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]

[3]  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!
