As Britain gets ready to celebrate a coronation event, my thoughts turn to my King. Let me introduce you.
My King wore a crown of thorns.
My King had no golden coach. He came as a humble servant riding a donkey. Zechariah 9:9, Matthew 21:5
My King had no palace. In fact he had nowhere to lay his head. Matthew 8:20
My King had no expensive ring; in fact they pierced his hands. Psalm 22:16

My King never did anything wrong, but I did and he died in my place.
My King shed his blood for me.
My King knew I was no good, so he gave me a new heart. Ezekiel 36:26, 2 Corinthians 5:17
My King loves me! And I love him!
My King watches over me. John 10:14

One day he will call my name and I will go to him. John 10:3
My King has a huge family and has adopted me. John 1:12, Romans 8:15, Galatians 4:5,6

My King is the Son of God, Jesus Christ. He will never leave me or forsake me. Deut 31:8, John 14:18
My King has gone away for a long time, but he will return when ‘the fullnesss of the gentiles has come in’. Romans 11:25
My King promised that if you believe in him, you HAVE eternal life. John 6:47
My King made the world wonderful, but bad people rejected him and ruined it.
My King left his heavenly throne to become a humble workman .
He told people the truth and many believed in him.
But most people rejected him and still do.

My King is coming! John 14:3

My King gives us all a choice to come to him or turn away. John 3:16-18
Won’t you accept my King today?
‘For God so loved the world he sent his only Son that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
‘For God did not send his Son to condemn the world, but that the world through him should be saved.
‘He who believes on the Son is not condemned, but he who believes not is condemned already because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.’ John 3:16-18
