royalty

a great prototype

  

When Josiah began his reign as King of Jerusalem life in the land was grim. The people were worshipping false gods. They had forsaken the ordinances of the Lord. The temple was in ruins. 

But when Josiah took charge things changed. He cleared the land of idol worship. He began repairing the temple. He reinstated ceremonies given by the Lord. The country did a complete turn around. 

King Josiah’s reign is the perfect example of what a Christian’s life should look like. 

Allow the Lord to get rid of the sin. Let Him restore you, the temple of the Holy Spirit. Be an example that people can follow after. Live so that people around you will benefit from your decisions. 

We all have an opportunity to become royalty in God’s kingdom. How will you govern?

Snapshot of Our Life

Jehoiachin, the King of Judah was put into the pit of a Babylonian prison. For four years he lived in captivity. Jehoiachin ate the same as the others. He wore the same prisoner garb. He was treated as if he weren’t a former king.

Then he found favor with the new Babylonian King.

Jehoiachin was promoted from the bonds that he was under. He was given a new change of clothes. He was seated at the King’s table for the rest of his life. Again he became royalty.

Isn’t that a beautiful picture? Someone taken from captivity and given a new life to live as royalty.

It’s the picture of us.

Regardless of what our earthly title or occupation was we were once bound by the chains of sin in need of redemption. Then Jesus came and called us out. He changed us. He made us royalty; heirs to His throne. And from now to eternity we can feast daily on the Bread of Life and drink of the Living Water.

You’ve been called out. Enjoy the freedom you’ve been given.
