Thoughts from the Corner Office

Easter was great! We had an early service with nearly 70 attending.  The music was great, thanks to Julie, Carla, Carrie, Don and Jamie.

 

Next came a great breakfast...thank you to the Deaconess Board for cooking and those who helped them setup.

 

Our morning worship was equally inspiring.  About 225 here.  We worshipped and praised God!

 

Tuesday evening's Bible Study is postponed until next week.

 

Revelation 1:17-18 – King Jesus: His Work
 

When I saw him, I fell at his feet as though dead. But he laid his right hand on me, saying, “Fear not, I am the first and the last, and the living one. I died, and behold I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of Death and Hades. (Revelation 1:17-18 ESV)

King Jesus is alive and literally glowing with power, like the sun (Revelation 1:12-16). He is sovereign, which means possessing supreme or ultimate power. He is worthy of our adoration, our worship, and our lives. But before all of these, he’s also worthy of our hearts.

Yesterday, we considered our response to King Jesus in light of the Apostle John’s reaction to him. He literally fell at Jesus’ feet “as though dead.” But what happened next? King Jesus “laid his hand on me, saying, “Fear not, I am the first and the last, and the living one. I died, and behold I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of Death and Hades.”

Jesus displayed his heart toward his worshipper.

The King’s heart is for us. It is not hardened by power, but compassionate toward us. His work on the earth has brought salvation to us by grace through faith (Ephesians 2:8). And his exalted reign still extends that grace. He yet reaches down to us and pulls us up, still places his mighty hand upon our shoulders in love. Indeed, we worship a mighty King, but so too a loving God.

Be moved to worship King Jesus by a heart of both affection and reverence today.
