Crown the King
January 18 | Taken from a message by Adrian Rogers
One night Joyce and I did something we hadn't done in years. We played checkers. I moved my man into King's Row, stuck out my chest, and said, "Crown me!"
You know, the kingdoms of this world are being moved around like checkers, but soon God's going to move His Son into King's Row and say, "Crown Him." You should be looking forward to that time.
How many times have we prayed as Jesus taught us to pray in Matthew 6:10, "Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done." And where is that supposed to happen? "On earth, as it is in heaven." Question: Has that prayer ever been answered?
Do you think God's will is being done on earth today? Look around at the crime, rape, murder, child abuse, and blasphemy. Do you think that's God's will? Do you think God's will is being done on earth as it is in heaven? Of course not.
Do you think it will be? Of course. Do you think Jesus Christ would have taught us to pray a prayer that will not be answered? God says, "I am going to put my King upon my holy hill in Zion" (see Psalm 2:6). God is going to move Jesus into King's Row and say, "Crown Him King!"
