THE KING IN ME



“What is man, that You are mindful of him? Or the son of man, that You visit him? You made him a little lower than the angels; You crowned him with glory and honor, and did set him over the works of Your hands: You have put all things in subjection under his feet” (Heb. 2:6-8).


A king is a man who is supreme or highly successful in some field. A king is classified by having the right parents.


Opinion – a belief not based on absolute certainty or positive knowledge but on what seems true, valid, or probable to one’s own mind; what one thinks; judgment.


Fact – a thing that has actually happened or is true; a thing that has been or is. Reality, truth, actuality; the state of things as they are. It’s in the Bible: “Your word is truth (John 17:17).”


People in today’s society would rather live life based on opinion rather than facts. They would rather believe what they hear as opposed to seeing and weighing a matter of situation. 2 Timothy 4:4 says; “And will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths.


A man is labeled for what he has gone through or endured. We see the guys with sagging pants and the dread locks and we immediately judge them. It is true that they seem to be a menace to society; but what does God say about them? We must realize they are human beings. We are so busy giving our opinions about what we think about a person because of the way they look or act but we fail to realize that they have some formed opinions about us. It doesn’t make it right.


We look at that little boy or man switching and talking with a soft high pitch voice and we immediately call him a sissy or a faggot but what are we doing to help them get their deliverance? We aren’t doing anything but talking about them. All we do is throw stones at them. What does God say about them? It is true God hates sin but he loves the individual. Jeremiah 31:3; The Lord said…Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love: therefore with loving-kindness have I drawn you. Once upon a time we have been caught up in stuff that we hope and pray to God that he will keep covered. How dare we pass judgment on someone else or look down our noses at them? Why don’t we take our masks off and come clean. We need to admit that, yes I have been caught up in things that were against the will of God and no, I am not perfect. If it had not been for the grace of God and Jesus shedding his blood on the cross, there go I caught up in the same mess. We are hypocrites, pretending to be something we are not.
