Christ came to earth first as a humble poor child, rejected by man, a man of sorrows, then a man that had no attractive form of His own. He had nothing in appearance that the people of the world would look up to and say, “This is the King.” But God has made Him King and ruler over everything.
For He grew up before Him like a young plant, and like a root out of the dry ground; He had no form or majesty that we should look at Him and no beauty that we should desire Him. Isaiah 53:2
It was what was on the inside, it was what was of true beauty, strength, integrity, purity, and holiness that defined Him. None of which could be seen or judged by His outward appearance. He came as a child, lowly and humble, and came to suffer and die as a sacrifice for the sins of the world.
But now He has conquered. He is seated on the throne of God in brilliant glory, honor, and power. He will come a second time as the judge to pour out His declaration of war on the rebellious and wicked. No longer of peace, grace, and mercy to the lost. He is coming in power and glory to punish all those who did not turn to Him. To defeat the wicked and reward the righteous.
That time is drawing ever closer. He could come at any moment. So as a faithful servant of the Lord, may you be found obedient to the Lord Jesus Christ your Savior, and serve Him with every moment you have left. Declare His Word, the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the people as the Lord gives you an opportunity.
“For, Yet a little while, and the coming one will come and will not delay;”
Do His will, obey His commands, do good to one another, and seek to save as many who are lost as possible. We wait and hope for His return to come soon. But until that glorious day of His return, be faithful to the end, for He will not delay much longer.
You are the most handsome of the sons of men; grace is poured upon your lips; therefore God has blessed you forever. Gird your sword on your thigh, O mighty one, in your splendor and majesty! In your majesty ride out victoriously for the cause of truth and meekness and righteousness; let your right hand teach you awesome deeds!
Your arrows are sharp in the heart of the king’s enemies; the peoples fall under you. Your throne, O God, is forever and ever. The scepter of your kingdom is a scepter of uprightness; you have loved righteousness and hated wickedness. Therefore God, your God, has anointed you with the oil of gladness beyond your companions; Psalm 45:2-7
