Audience of One for the King, Please?

Joy to the earth, the Savior reigns!
Let men their songs employ,
while fields and floods, rocks, hills, and plains,
repeat the sounding joy,
repeat the sounding joy,
repeat, repeat the sounding joy.

Joy to the World, verse 2

When we think of someone who reigns, a condition of that reign is usually one of duration and/or proximity.  For example, the reigning world champions of some event will only maintain such a status until there is a competition to name the subsequent world champion.  In terms of proximity, even the most tenacious of conquerors has an end to their governed territory and thus their reign only extends so far on the globe.

That all changed with baby Jesus, and we have a new kind of reign: one which is bound by neither geographical nor temporal constructs, and one which the world has seen neither before nor since. Jesus, our personal savior, is also the savior of the ENTIRE world for ALL eternity! He reigns in Heaven…right now…as I type and as you read. 

The battle has already been won!  No wonder we sing for joy!

And do you know what else sets our Savior apart from other rulers?  Traditionally, one has to seek an audience with someone of authority.  The subject may or may not be granted a visitation and, if so, they are typically heard on a singular topic.  A subject certainly can’t expect a standing coffee date so as to cultivate an ongoing relationship with the ruler. 

But, our Savior is different. His ways are not our ways.  Thank goodness! 

Not only is He available 24/7, He actually wants to spend as much time with you as possible and to cultivate a personal and profound relationship with you.  Amazing! Friends, find joy in this miraculous reality!
