The Lord Our King

Search Resources

The Lord is King for ever and ever (Psalm 10:16). He is our spiritual King, all-knowing, all-powerful, and ever-present with us. But we can choose whether or not to welcome the Lord as our King. We decide whether to look to Him and bow ourselves down to His laws—His truths. The Lord’s laws have been given for our welfare and happiness but sometimes we want to make up our own rules.

If we turn to the Lord as our King, He will come with His great love to save us. Like the crowds of people on that first Palm Sunday, we can rejoice, knowing that He will bring joy and peace to our hearts.

  • From a talk by Norbert Rogers:
    • Each time we want to do the Lord’s will we are acknowledging that we want Him to be our King and to rule over our lives.
    • We acknowledge the Lord as our King whenever we go to His Word to learn His truth, whenever we let that truth direct our thinking, whenever we want to do what the truth from the Word teaches, and whenever we actually obey that truth in our life.
