"That's My King!" Who Was Single Yet He Burned Aflame With Passion Yearned For His Bride Who Spurned Her Righteousness He Earned And From Her Sin She Turned To Long For His Return!

"For it is better to marry than to be aflame with passion." 1 Corinthians 7:9

Jesus was a single man His whole time on earth, but He was always aflame with passion for His bride, the Church. At the consummation of all things, He will take her to Himself and marry her so that He might express His flaming passion for her in new, glorious, and utterly sensational ways for all eternity!

Come Lord Jesus!

He was single all His life
And conquered every strife
Then gave His precious life
So we could be His wife!

That's my King!

Pleasures of marriage He never knew
He lived and died – the single Jew
There's joy in sex and marriage true
But from a greater joy He drew
Eternal pleasures are what He knew
Joys from His Father through and through
His delights in the Father flourished and grew
The pleasures of sin away He threw
No lust His heart would ever pursue
For God's beauty itself is the greatest view
His heart was crushed when this Beauty withdrew
For on that cross God's wrath would spew
Forsaken by God He paid our due
Though no sin to Him would ever accrue
He became sin for me and for you
Then He arose and made all things new
To bring you to God – a bride clean and true
Come to Him now – your desires He'll subdue
You'll cry from your heart:  "All my joy is You!"

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

Oh Father please come – my need seems dire
Please come help me fight overwhelming desire
Oh God You alone can put out the fire
Turn my eyes upon You and lift me up higher
To trust and obey all that You require
May I find "Christ is all!" –  my great King and Sire
And delight in Him – our greatest Desire!

That's my King!

God's Word says singleness is the best way
And you'll be happier if single you stay
All your attention on God you can lay
He'll fill all your thoughts – to Him you can pray
He wants you alone with Him everyday
A Lover Who's jealous and won't let you stray
He's the Fountain of all delight so survey
His glorious beauty on full display
He died to take your sins away
And lives to give you life His way
So trust in Him and fight to obey
He'll grant you contentment – come what may!

That's my King! I wonder if you know Him?!

One day you'll be married for eternal duration
This fact is certain – God's declaration
For all who trust in Christ for salvation
Will marry the Lamb in the new creation
His bride you will be from every nation
You'll marry the King – the best combination
Most loving, most kind, your closest relation
The greatest Spouse – beyond all expectation!
If you have Him, fear no deprivation
You'll know all is good at the consummation
Where joys in Him pass all imagination
And grow forever in great adoration
The Husband-King is all compensation
So find in Him life's full celebration!

That's my King!  That's my King!
