The Baby Is a King

The Baby is a King

The baby in the manger came to be King.

That infant was the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

He would grow to be a man, a perfect man, who would preach again and again about the
kingdom He came to establish.

Usually, the story ends with the king being the mighty conqueror.

One of the ironies of the biblical story is that the King had to die first.

Paul David Tripp said, “This is grace: The King died to dethrone kings so that he would be their King forever and ever and ever.”

The baby Jesus didn’t look like a king—no crown or royal robes.  

But don’t misunderstand.  He came to be king, and his kingship is your salvation.

In Christ,
Jonathan
