Jesus comes not with great honor,
— but in deep humility.
He comes not arriving in a luxurious palace,
— but in a manger for cattle.
He comes not to wear a crown of gold,
— but one of thorns.
He comes not to be loved,
— but to love;
not to be served,
— but to serve;
not to grasp and grab,
— but to give.
He comes not to be dragged down by sin,
— but to be exalted to the highest place,
not to receive honor from one country,
— but to hear all creation confess Him as Lord.
He comes not rich in money and wealth,
— but rich in grace;
not to spread fear,
— but to impart joy and hope;
not to bring war,
— but to bring peace.
He rules not from a throne made by mere mortals;
— He reigns at His Father’s right hand for now and eternity.
The true King of kings is coming for me and for you.
— Do you see Him?
— Do you know Him?
