That's My King!

This is from a sermon by the late S.M. Lockridge...

The Bible says my King is the King of the Jews, He’s the King of Israel, He’s the King of righteousness, He’s the King of the ages, He’s the King of heaven, He’s the King of glory, He’s the King of Kings and He’s the Lord of Lords. That’s my King! My King is a sovereign King, no means of His measure can define His limitless love. He’s enduringly strong, He’s entirely sincere, He’s eternally steadfast, He’s immortally graceful, He’s imperially powerful, He’s impartially merciful. He’s the greatest phenomenon that has ever crossed the horizon of this world, He’s God’s Son, He’s a sinner’s Saviour, He’s the centrepiece of civilization, He’s unparalleled, He’s unprecedented, He’s the loftiest idea in literature, He’s the highest personality in philosophy, He’s the fundamental doctrine of true theology, and He’s the only One qualified to be an all sufficient Saviour. He supplies strength for the weak, He’s 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 captive, He defends the feeble, He blesses the young, He serves the unfortunate, He regards the aged, He rewards the diligent, and He beautifies the meagre. He’s the key to knowledge, He’s the wellspring of wisdom, He’s the doorway to deliverance, He’s the pathway of peace, He’s the roadway of righteousness, He’s the highway of holiness, He’s the gateway of glory. 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, His yoke is easy and His burden is light. I wish I could describe Him to you… He’s indescribable, He’s incomprehensible, He’s invincible, He’s irresistible, you can’t get Him out of your mind, you can’t get Him off of your hand, you can’t outlive Him, and you can’t live without Him. The Pharisees couldn’t stand Him, but they found out they couldn’t stop Him. Pilate couldn’t find any fault in Him, Herod couldn’t kill Him, death couldn’t handle Him, and the grave couldn’t hold Him. That’s my King!
