"That's my King!" In The Book Of Romans!

Everyone should bow their knee to my King and be His everlasting, always dedicated, humbly submissive slave!
The Gospel of God is all about my King!
God made all kinds of promises in the holy Scriptures from long ago about His Son, Who was, is, and shall forevermore be King of all kings!
He was descended from David according to the flesh!
He was declared to be the Son of God in power according to the Spirit of holiness by His resurrection from the dead!
He's our Lord!
He grants us grace to bring about the obedience of faith for the sake of His name among all the nations!

That's my King!

He's the only one Who ever lived a perfectly righteous life with perfectly righteous faith!
He never suppressed the truth in unrighteousness!
He never exchanged the truth of God for a lie!
He always acknowledged God in everything He did!
He's righteous!
He's good!
He's content!
He's loving!
He's life giving!
He's the peacemaker!
He's truthful!

That's my King! Do you know Him?!

He's the preeminent lover of God!
He's humble!
He obeyed His parents perfectly!
He's the wisest of the wise!
He has the biggest heart of anyone who has ever walked on the face of this earth!
Glory and honor and peace are due Him because He only did what was always good!
God judges all the secrets in the hearts and minds of all people by my King Jesus!
Circumcision was indeed valuable to Him because He did keep the whole law!

That's my King!

He's not under sin!
He never turned aside from God!
He's worth more than all the joys, pleasures, and riches this world has to offer!
He only does good!
His throat proclaims an open, empty tomb!
His tongue only speaks what is true!
The honey of the honeycomb is under His lips!
His mouth is full of blessings and sweetness!
His feet are swift to give new life!
In His path is renewal and joy!
His way is peace, and He truly feared God alone like no other!

That's my King! Are you following Him as His disciple today?!

He is the righteousness of God!
The Law and the Prophets bear witness to Him!
He's the only way to be redeemed and regain a right relationship with a holy God!
He was put forward on that cross as an anger removing sacrifice by His own Father!
He displayed to the universe the unflinching, pristine righteousness of His Father in His death on the cross!
By not working but by trusting in my King, you will be counted just as righteous as my King Himself and you will be accepted in the Beloved!
He was delivered up for our trespasses and raised for our justification!

That's my King!

He won for us peace with God!
Through Him we have obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God!
He died for the ungodly!
He demonstrates God's love for us in that while we were still sinners, our King died for us!
We have been justified by His blood!
He saved us from the wrath of God!
By His death He reconciled us to God even though we were His enemies!
His life saves us!
Through Him the free gift of God's grace abounds to many!
His one act of righteousness leads to justification and life for all men!
Through His obedience many will be made righteous!
Because of my King's life, death, and resurrection, where sin abounds grace abounds all the more!

That's my King! Are you finding your hope and righteousness in Him alone today?!

He was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father!
He will never die again!
Death no longer has dominion over Him!
He died to sin and lives to God!
We died with Him, and we died to the law so that we might be married to another – Jesus Christ the righteous!
My King delivers wretched men from their bodies of death! Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ!
The subjects of my King enjoy no condemnation forever, regardless of what they've done or failed to do in the past!

That's my King!

He was condemned in the flesh so that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us!
He's the greatest gift the Father could ever give us!
God is working everything together for good in the lives of the followers of my King!
Since the Father didn't even spare His own Son on our behalf, He shall surely with Him also freely give us all things!
He's at the right hand of God always interceding for us for our best and greatest good!
Nothing shall separate us from the love of our King – not tribulation; not distress; not persecution; not famine; not nakedness; not danger; not sword; not death; not life; not angels; not rulers; not things present; not things to come; not powers; not height; not depth; not loneliness; not hard circumstances; not the loss of a spouse; not old age; not singleness; not failing health; not rejection; not failure; not all manner of “impossible to handle situations” in your life; not depression; not hopelessness; not anything else in all creation; none of it will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord and King!

That's my King! Are you trusting Him with all the circumstances in your life today?!

My King was made the hated one on the cross so that sinners like you and me might be forever loved!
My King was made a vessel of God's wrath on that cross so that sinners like you and me might be vessels of mercy forever!
Whoever believes in my King shall never ever be put to shame!
He's the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes!
He's Lord of all!
Through His Word faith comes that leads to salvation!
He's the Deliverer Who came from Zion!
He's the only One Who can take away our sins!

That's my King!

Though we are from many different races, backgrounds, nations, and cultures, we are all one body in my King – one in Jesus Christ!
His love is genuine, though He is not loved genuinely in return!
He abhors what is evil!
He holds fast to what is good!
He loves His people with brotherly affection!
He outdid and outdoes everyone in showing honor, even when malicious dishonor is shown toward Him!
He's fervent in Spirit!
He rejoiced in hope!
He was patient in tribulation!
He was constant in prayer!
He contributed to the needs of the saints!
He blessed those who persecuted Him, and He loved those who cursed Him!

That's my King! Are you seeking to follow in His footsteps today? And if not I wonder if you know Him?!

He rejoices with those who rejoice, and He weeps with those who weep!
He wasn't proud but associated with the lowly!
He repaid no one evil for evil!
He never avenged Himself!
He fed His hungry enemy!
He gave drink to His thirsty enemy!
He was never overcome with evil, but He always overcame evil with good!
Whoever serves my King is acceptable to God!
He did not please Himself!
He suffered all the reproaches, pains, and hardships of His people so that they might be saved!
He made a way for us in all of our diversity to glorify God with one voice!
Through His life, death, and resurrection, He made a way for us to glorify God for His mercy!

That's our King!
