The King Shall Come: HE IS COMING TO SAVE US

Rulers plan and administrate and govern. They typically do not save. If your house is on fire, it will not be the mayor who shows up to save you from the flames. If America were attacked, the President would serve as the commander in chief of the armed forces. The President would not pick up a weapon, go to the front lines, and fight to save you from the enemy.

Jesus is different. He is both infinitely greater than all other rulers, yet also infinitely humbler. He does not consider it beneath his rank as King to risk his life for his subjects. He is willing to fight for us. He is willing to die for us. For King Jesus came into our world for one reason—to save us.

In our Old Testament Lesson, the people of God cry out for God to finally come down to earth and rescue us from misery, brought on by our very own sins. Even our most righteous acts are still like filthy rags in comparison to the holiness God demands. If only our Divine King could cleanse us and provide holiness for us!

And He does. King Jesus Is Coming to Save Us. Because of Jesus, our scarlet sins are made as white as snow through faith in Him. Let us prepare to meet Him by repenting and believing!
