…He has this name written:
KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS
– Revelation 19:16
Right now King Jesus is filling the universe with his sovereignty, his majesty and his life-giving activity.
“Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (Philippians 2:9-11)
Far too many Christians today are not Christ-driven because our vision of him is too small.
We’ve become shortsighted about Jesus— we know far too little about the person, purposes, promises and power of God’s exalted, reigning Son. Christian leaders everywhere are calling this a crisis of monumental proportions. So often we try to place Jesus at our service. We put Jesus at the center of where we’re headed and what we’re doing and we expect him to meet our needs. He’s become more our “mascot” than our Monarch. This crisis often renders God’s people spiritually lethargic, aim-less, hopeless, helpless, useless. Has this crisis about the greatness of Christ today diminished your walk with him — the way you see him and love him and live for him?
“But I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent’s cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ. For if someone comes to you and preaches a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached…you put up with it easily enough.” (2 Corinthians 11:3-4)
Well, there is hope. A Christ Awakening begins when God’s Spirit uses God’s Word to reintroduce God’s people to God’s Son for ALL he is right now.
“…You have a reputation of being alive but you are dead. Wake up!” (Revelation 3:1-2)
“Wake up, sleeper and rise from the dead and Christ will shine on you.” (Ephesians 5:14)
“The hour has already come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed…Rather, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ…” (Romans 13:11-14)
