So they cried out, “Away with Him, away with Him, crucify Him!” Pilate said to them, “Shall I crucify your King?” the chief priests answered, “We have no king but Caesar.” – John 19:15
Pilate also wrote an inscription and put it on the cross. It was written, “JESUS THE NAZARENE, THE KING OF THE JEWS.” – John 19:19
The proclamation of the King does not always come from the most religious, no, it usually comes from the most unexpected places. The Jews said, we have no king but Caesar. This reminds me of when they wanted King Saul in the Old Testament, forgetting that they already had a king.
I forget sometimes in my own life who the true king is of my world. God is the true and only king that I ought to have and that I need. He provides for me and ensures that I am taken care of. He takes evil away from me and defeats the traps of the Devil and his minions.
Just remember that just because you are a religious sort, it does not make you a righteous sort. We must proclaim the one true King as King for it to be so. He has got to be at the center and command of my life. I cannot proclaim any other king in my life.
This means that my devotion and dedication fall to Him first and foremost, nothing else. My way, my family, my job nor my life can be put in front of Him and His will in my life, if I do place them there, they become my king instead of God. Today, I must put Him first; today, I must decide that He is my King.
All Honor and Glory to God,
