For as the lightning flashes and lights up the sky from one side to the other, so will the Son of Man be in his day. Luke 17:24
But for you who fear My name, the sun of righteousness shall rise with healing in its wings. Malachi 4:2

But far be it from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ . . . Galatians 6:14
For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. 1 Corinthians 2:2

"That's My King!" Who's The Mustard Seed Of Mustard Seeds Out Growing All The Plants Of The Earth!

He started out small, but He ended up larger than life!
You can't out grow Him, and you can't grow without Him!
The sidewalk of your stubborn heart can't stop Him from growing up and bearing fruit!
There's no weed killer that can make His unconquerable branches wither and die!
You can't stop His growth, stunt His growth, or cement over His growth because He's sown, supported, strengthened, and satisfied by the Supreme Sovereign Savior of the world!
He doesn't need soil!
He doesn't need fertilizer!
He doesn't need water!
And He doesn't need the sun because He's a light all to Himself!
He was smaller than small, but now He's bigger than big!
He's bigger than the biggest reality you could ever imagine and then some!

That's my King!  I wonder if He's the biggest treasure in your heart today?!

His beginnings were small and secluded, little and limited, but don't despise the day of small things!
He was born of a virgin accused of immorality, but don't despise the day of small things!
His parents were young, inexperienced, poor, and unheard of, but don't despise the day of small things!
He was born and laid in the feeding trough of unclean animals, but don't despise the day of small things!
He was born as a little baby, in a little country, to a little family, in a little empire, on a little planet, in a little solar system, in a little galaxy, in a little universe compared to the utter bigness of what He always has been and what He always will be!  Don't despise the day of small things!
He lived an obscure, unknown life for thirty years and publicly taught for only three years, but don't despise the day of small things!
He had no form or majesty that we should look at Him, and no beauty that we should desire Him, but don't despise the day of small things!
While ministering with His disciples He had no place to lay His head, but don't despise the day of small things!
He was despised and rejected by men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief, but don't despise the day of small things!
His disciples never seemed to understand what He was teaching, but don't despise the day of small things!
He came into Jerusalem, humble and riding on a donkey, but don't despise the day of small things!
His disciples all forsook Him in His greatest time of need, but don't despise the day of small things!
He was falsely accused, spit upon, beaten, ridiculed, stripped down naked and hung on a cross to die the worst death in the history of this world, but don't despise the day of small things!
On that cross He satisfied the wrath of God in His own body on the tree, and as the Lamb of God He took away the sin of the world!  So don't despise the day of small things!

That's my King!  Do you know Him?!

He didn't stay dead and that's where all His smallness began to get real big!
He rose up from the dead and conquered all the biggest enemies of God and the human race forever!
His bigness conquered Satan in stunning superiority!
His bigness triumphed over sin by opening a cleansing fountain filled with blood!
His bigness won the victory over death so that we may live forever and live to die no more!
Now He's bigger than life, more precious than life, the only One Who can give life, and the only One Who makes life worth living!
The book written all about Him, the Bible, is the best-selling book of all time!
His few, cowardly, denying, slow-to-understand disciples have grown in numbers to compose one of the largest religions on the planet!
His disciples continue to grow and increase with people from every tribe, tongue, people, and nation as they repent and believe in Him and learn to obey all He's commanded!
His Kingdom can't be stopped, it won't be stopped, and the more people try to stop it by all manner of opposition, violence, and death the more it will grow and grow back stronger!
It will continue to grow until all of God's and our enemies are placed under His feet, all His chosen, blood-bought people are saved, and He returns to create a new heavens and a new earth where holiness, righteousness, beauty, glory, and goodness will flourish forever and ever!
For all His followers He must be, will be, and cannot help but be their biggest joy, treasure, and pleasure, and their greatest hope, love, and delight in all the universe!

That's my King!  That's my King!
