Jesus my King

There’s an awesome KING’S REWARD waiting for you! But do you know the king?

The bible reveals that there is one king over every nation, race and language on earth. That King is Jesus!

[Revelation 1:5, Hebrews 1:8, Daniel 7:14]

King Jesus has qualified you for a king’s reward. Let me explain.

Kings give commands. Do you know what the first great command is? King Jesus said: “You MUST love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.”

[Matthew 22:36-38]

Friend, if you have not loved God with all your heart all your life, without fail, you have failed to obey his very first command. You don’t get a reward – you get the king’s punishment! But King Jesus himself took your place of punishment by dying on the cross!

When Jesus died for us, he took our place to fulfill ALL of God’s commands. If you have accepted Jesus’ death for your sins, God now sees you as a perfect person who has kept all his commands!

[Romans 5:17, Romans 8:3-4]

Do you know that those who obey the King’s commands will prosper and enjoy the King’s blessings? Those blessings are the King’s reward for obedience! They’re amazing and you must read them for yourself in the bible.

[Deuteronomy 5:29, Deuteronomy 28:1-14]

Those rewards are wonderful, but there is one more great GIFT that King Jesus has given you.

The bible says, “Jesus is exalted to the place of highest honor in heaven, at God’s right hand. And the Father, as he had promised, gave him the Holy Spirit to pour out upon us.”

This is what the Holy Spirit, King Jesus’ gift, does for us: He fills our hearts with God’s love and helps us understand how dearly God loves us! And as we are filled with God’s deep love, we become complete, full of God’s life and power!

[Acts 2:32-33, Romans 5:5, Ephesians 3:16-19]

Dear friend, Jesus is King and he has given us the King’s reward for his obedience to God’s commands! And he has also given us a wonderful gift that continually fills our hearts with God’s love – the Holy Spirit!
