"That's My King!" Who's The Greatest Somebody Who Became A Nobody And Rose As The First New Body And Now He Can Save Anybody So We All Must Tell Everybody About This Somebody Of All Somebodies!

I was convicted of my sin last night at a Young Life camp where the question was asked:  "What is the greatest cry that your sinful flesh thinks it needs?"

My answer:  I want to be Somebody, and I want to have and to hold somebody.

So I fight to look to the only all-sufficient, all-satisfying, glorious, most beautiful Somebody once again:

There's nobody like my Somebody!  Not even close!  If you've found somebody that excites you like this Somebody you better run the other direction from that idol body!

He's the greatest Somebody like no other body has ever been!
He's the famous One, and the One we all should be trying to make more famous among the nations!
He's the Somebody to Whom every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that He is LORD!
He's the Somebody Who heals the sick, gives sight to the blind, and makes the deaf hear!
He's the Somebody Who makes demons flee, cleanses lepers, and raises the dead!
He's the Somebody Who forgives sins, calms the wind and waves, and walks on water!
He's the Somebody Who knows the future, planned the future, and works it all for your good!
He's the Somebody Who is the great I AM come in the flesh!
He's the Somebody Who's the King of kings and LORD of lords!
He's the Somebody Who's the First and the Last and the Beginning and the End!
He's the Somebody Who's the Alpha and the Omega!
He's the Somebody Who lived the only perfectly obedient life and always did His Father's will!
He's the Somebody Who died on that cross and swallowed the wrath of Almighty God!
He's the Somebody Who rose up from the grave and conquered sin, death, and the devil once and for all!

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

He's the Somebody Who rules and reigns over all!
He's the Somebody Who has all authority in heaven and on earth!
He's the Somebody bigger and better than anything this universe has ever seen!
He's the Somebody Who made the universe and upholds it by the Word of His power!
He's the Somebody in Whom all the fullness of God dwells bodily!
He's the Somebody Who is my LORD and my God!
He's the Somebody Who loves you too much to let you have any other somebody more loved than Himself!
He's the Somebody Who wants to crush all your somebody idols!
He's the Somebody Who alone can satisfy your soul!
He's the Somebody Who alone can give you what you need!
He's the Somebody Who alone can save you from all your sins!
He's the Somebody Who alone can deliver you from God's wrath to come!
He's the Somebody Who alone is the Way, the Truth, and the Life!

That's my King!

He's the Somebody Who is your only way back to God!
He's the Somebody Who is the resurrection and the life!
He's the Somebody Who is the God of the impossible!
He's the Somebody Who chose things that are not to bring to nothing things that are so that no human being may boast in the presence of God!
He's the Somebody Who can do exceedingly abundantly above and beyond anything we could ever ask or think!
He's the Somebody Who loves like no other lover!
He's the Somebody Who loves the unlovable!
He's the Somebody Who made the very beauty you so long to hold and crave to possess!
He's the Somebody Who alone can give you the affection that you need!
He's the Somebody Who cares for you better than anybody and knows what's best for you!
He's the Somebody Who loves you perfectly and will never leave you nor forsake you!
He's the Somebody Who pursues you even when you run away and treat Him with contempt!
He's the Somebody Who will never give up on you but chases you with goodness and mercy all the days of your life!

That's my King!

He's the Somebody Who is tender and compassionate and tough and compelling all at the same time!
He's the Somebody Who's irresistible!
He's the Somebody Who ought to be on our minds at all times!
He's the Somebody we ought to daydream about!
He's the Somebody we ought to write love songs about!
He's the Somebody we ought to write poetry about!
He's the Somebody Who ought to give us butterfly’s!
He's the Somebody Who ought to compel us to do crazy things because of love!
He's the Somebody Who's our all in all and will never let us fall!
He's the Somebody worthy of everything we've got!
He's the Somebody worth dying for!
He's the Somebody worth giving up all our hopes and dreams for!
He's the Somebody Who loves us nobodies, who are making false somebodies out of anybody, He loves us so much that He became a nobody on that cross where He died and then rose up from the dead so that we could be saved and exalt Him as the Somebody of somebodies now and for all eternity!

That's my King!  That's my Somebody!

May God grant us grace to trust King Jesus as our Somebody today!
