King · servant

twenty-one days…

Twenty-one days… three short weeks… till Christmas…

More seeking of Him…
the One we are to celebrate…
preparing a heart…
preparing a spirit…
for more than hustle and bustle…

He comes as King… a humble King
but do we understand… just how humble…?

Out of the anguish of his soul he shall see and be satisfied;
by his knowledge shall the righteous one, my servant,
make many to be accounted righteous,
and he shall bear their iniquities.
Isaiah 53:11 ESV
He comes as the Servant King…
He comes to serve… not to be served…
But Jesus called them to him and said,
“You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them,
and their great ones exercise authority over them.
It shall not be so among you. But whoever would be great
among you must be your servant, and whoever would be first
among you must be your slave, even the Son of Man
came not to be served but to serve,
and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
Matthew 20:25-28 ESV
The Creator… Ruler… Keeper… of the universe…
the true… rightful… King…
the One possessing all authority… all power…
came as… Servant…
He came as His Father’s Servant…
He came to serve us…
you… me…
He did the lowliest of jobs…
He washed feet…
He bore our burden…
He claimed our sins… took our punishment…
You give me your shield of victory,
and your right hand sustains me;
you stoop down to make me great.
Psalm 18:35
Lord Jesus… I praise You as Servant King…
the King who stoops… and serves…
to wash feet… and souls…
Your love stoops low… to make me great…

Today… I choose to serve You…
