The Bible teaches that Christ also has a Kingdom on earth. His Kingdom is in the hearts of all who trust in Him. He has pronounced a special blessing on those who love Him. He is the undisputed King of the souls of believers of all colors and races in the world today.
Believers are still willing to die for Him. He still makes unconditional demands on our lives. He still denounces sin. His presence is still incongruous with dishonesty, greed and selfishness. His selfless love is still the wonder of the universe. He is the Savior of sinners, the Author of peace and the Hope of the world.
Dear Lord, I declare that You are the King of kings and the Lord of lords. Please forgive me for allowing other things to distract me from keeping You on the throne of my life. I surrender anew and ask You to have Your way in and through me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
