The Crown Rights of Our Glorious King

August 26, 2017
Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, ‘All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.  Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things whatever I have commanded you; and behold, I am with you always, even to the end of the age’” (Matthew 28:18-20).  Never were words more relevant than those uttered by our Lord Jesus Christ in this post resurrection appearance. The seriousness of those words should grip your soul.  Nobody can understand these words without realizing an obligation to bring their life under the awesome authority of Jesus Christ.  Failure to recognize that authority is equal to repudiating the sovereignty of God in the universe.  I want us therefore, to think for a few moments about the claim, the changing power and the control of that authority in our lives.
References: Matthew 28:18-20
