Jesus: Do You Know Him?
ĒBut what about you?" he [Jesus] asked. "Who do you say I am?" Simon Peter answered, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God."1
Todayís Daily Encounter is the text of an inspiring message, ďThatís My King,Ē by the late S.M. Lockridge.
The Bible says my King is the King of the Jews Ö Heís the King of Israel. Heís the King of Righteousness. Heís the King of the Ages. Heís the King of Heaven. Heís the King of Glory. Heís the King of Kings, and Heís the Lord of Lords.
Thatís my King! I wonder do you know Him?
My King is a sovereign King. No means of measure can define His limitless love. Heís enduringly strong. Heís entirely sincere. Heís eternally steadfast. Heís immortally graceful. Heís imperially powerful. Heís impartially merciful.
Do you know Him?
Heís the greatest phenomenon that has ever crossed the horizon of this world, Heís Godís Son, Heís the sinners Savior, Heís the centerpiece of civilization, Heís unparalleled, Heís unprecedented. Heís the loftiest idea in literature. Heís the highest personality in philosophy. Heís the fundamental doctrine of true theology. Heís the only one qualified to be an all sufficient Savior.
I wonder if you know Him today?
He supplies strength for the weak. Heís available for the tempted and the tried. He sympathizes and He saves. He strengthens and sustains. He guards and He guides. He heals the sick. He cleansed the lepers. He forgives sinners. He discharges debtors. He delivers the captives. He defends the feeble. He blesses the young. He serves the unfortunate. He regards the aged. He rewards the diligent. And he beautifies the meek.
I wonder if you know Him?
Heís the key to knowledge. Heís the wellspring of wisdom. Heís the doorway of deliverance. Heís the pathway of peace. Heís the roadway of righteousness. Heís the highway of holiness. Heís the gateway of glory.
Do you know Him?
Well, His life is matchless. His goodness is limitless. His mercy is everlasting. His love never changes. His Word is enough. His grace is sufficient. His reign is righteous and His yoke is easy and His burden is light. I wish I could describe Him to you. Yes, Heís indescribable. Heís incomprehensible. Heís invincible. Heís irresistible. You canít get him out of your mind. You canít get him off of your hand. You canít outlive him and you canít live without Him. Well, the Pharisees couldnít stand Him. But they found out they couldnít stop Him. Pilate couldnít find any fault in Him. Herod couldnít kill him. Death couldnít handle Him, and the grave couldnít hold Him. Yea! Thatís my King.2
