King of Kings

Yesterday I joined a world-wide audience watching the coronation of King Charles III of the United Kingdom. Such pomp, precision, golden carriages, and gorgeous music, along with crowns, scepters, and orbs. Did you catch the fact that the king placed his hand on the Bible when he recited the oath, took communion, and listened to the names of Jesus Christ and Almighty God mentioned numerous times?

In the midst of the ceremony, it occurred to me that all the honor of this ceremony – with the soaring music and prose that praised a sovereign – rightly belonged to my Lord and Savior, the Jesus they mentioned frequently. He alone is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords and only He is worthy of our worship. I hope Charles III follows Him as he rules.

God bless – Sue
