Please join me as I continue to study Ann Spangler's book, Praying the Names of Jesus. This week's name of Christ, King of Kings, called me to meditate on God's ultimate mastery over every aspect of creation, even death itself.
There are so many ways to rule a kingdom--or anyone. Often this is accomplished by control. But Ann writes that "God's kingdom, presided over by the most powerful ruler in the universe, operates on entirely different principles. Its integrity depends not on external force but on the internal, indestructible power of Christ's love."
How amazing that our king doesn't force, but invite. He doesn't compel, he loves. And when we allow him to, he transforms us by the power of the Holy Spirit.
