A Perfect King

Welcome back,

Over the past weeks we have been admiring some of the amazing characteristics of God as our Abba Father. This week we want to ponder the truth that while He is our Heavenly Father, He is our loving Daddy, and He is also King. As you will recall, Jesus instructs us in John 14:9 to look at Him if we want to see what Abba is like. This means Abba is not only King, He is the King of kings. The one and only.

 

What are some of the prerequisites of a King? There is one obvious one, which we will look at today, and that is He must have a kingdom. Let's see what Scripture says about this; quoting Jesus in His Lord's prayer found in Matthew 6:10, "Your kingdom come, your will be done….".

Then in Daniel 4:3, we find this nugget from a human king, Nebuchadnezzar, "How great are His signs, how mighty His wonders! His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and His dominion endures from generation to generation."

 

So, on this point it is obvious Abba has a kingdom and is therefore a King. And what a kingdom it is! In this kingdom, rather than ruling over us with an iron fist, we are guided lovingly by His hand. In this kingdom, instead of being merely His subjects, we are adopted into His royal family. In this kingdom, instead of being judged by our works, we are covered by His finished work.

 

Like I said, what a kingdom! Like any kingdom, it reflects the character of the King, and we should rejoice in that truth.

Until next week, tell people your Daddy is the King.

 

Blessings,

Thomas

Note: “but God” is a weekly ministry of Robinson Outdoors Products written for us by pastor and spiritual counselor, Thomas Paige. “But God” is posted each week on the ScentBlocker website and can be found there along with the archives of messages of past months from Thomas. “But God” is also posted each week on ScentBlocker Facebook page and on Twitter.

 

You may ask, “why would Robinson, an outdoor products company with brands ScentBlocker and Tree Spider, making  products for hunters, spend its time on something like “but God”?”

Great question, as we here at Robinson consider our work place our mission field, our products bearing the John 3:16inscription our outreach. For 2014, there will be a laminated waterproof jacket pocket insert that contains the salvation message printed in two languages. And, we ask the Lord to provide more opportunities for us to be a light unto a dark world.

 

What responses do we receive from our customers? Each week thousands and thousands of people read the “but God” message online. We receive dozens and dozens of appreciative emails, rejoicing that a company has the courage to stand up for what it believes despite perhaps it not being the most popular thing to do these days. God has blessed our lives and our  business!

 

I hope you will enjoy this weeks’ “…but God” as Thomas continues the series, unto the Lord!
