VerseD: 1 Peter 5:6

Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you
1 Peter 5:6, ESV

Our Great Shepherd will give us a crown of glory (eternal life in glorified bodies) for humbly serving Him.

Do not demand authority or expect earthly rewards in this life. Merely lead others to the Shepherd King, Jesus, as a willing servant.

VerseD: Luke 19:38

saying, “Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!”
Luke 19:38, ESV

How do we respond to the coming King? Are we as fickle as the crowd in Jerusalem 2000 years ago, shifting allegiance based on how we think Jesus should be? Or do we seek the truth of who He is?

Just one more weekend to go…white-house-south-2007-dj

We assure ourselves that if only the right man is elected, then our troubles will be erased:

We will have more money.

We will enjoy more opportunities.

We will be safer and more secure.

We will be happier.
