Who do you put your faith in?
In the 1930s, as war approached in Europe, the British loved their monarchs. The royal family has been beloved for generations, and King Edward the 8th was ready to take his place on the throne after the death of his father.
The people loved the dashing young king, and he seemed to enjoy his role.
Then he fell in love.
Falling in love isn’t a bad thing, even for kings, but Edward loved an American woman who was divorced. In royal society, that just wasn’t done. So in an amazing decision, Edward abdicated! He left the throne less than a year after assuming power.
1 Timothy 1:17 - Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.
Earthly kings come and go, but Jesus Christ will never abdicate. He will never abandon his duties. In fact, His famous sacrifice on the cross would not have been offered by any earthly king.
It was too costly.
Put your faith in the eternal King, today.
Lord, we have confidence in you that you will never abandon us. Thank you for your eternal love and that of your Son, Jesus. Amen.
