The King Mentality

..."Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen... 
[Matthew 28:5, 6]

King is defined by Wikipedia as : the male ruler of an independent state, esp. one who inherits the position by right of birth.

Royalty is defined by Wikipedia as: people of royal blood or status.

In light of Easter weekend, and Resurrection Day, I would like to take the opportunity to really delve into what Jesus truly did for us. When we think of the term "fit for a King", we always think of the best of the very best. By the same token, when we consider the "royal treatment" or someone who is "royalty", we're in awe of what this represents.

Now ponder this fact : no matter where you were born, no matter who you were born to, no matter what has happened in your past, those of us who have accepted Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour are royalty.......we have rights to the kingdom of God through Christ.

Because Jesus died for us, was buried and rose again, it not only means that those of us who are saved have eternal life and can be forgiven of all of our sins, but it also means FULL ACCESS to God, our King, and His Kingdom. We simply need to realize this, and act accordingly. Just like a prince or princess who has been born into royalty and groomed to think and act a certain way, we must adapt our mindset to that of royalty and in expectation of our inheritance!

A King's Inheritance

by Ellen Bailey

We all have an inheritance from a King

We are children of God, that's what I mean

If we let Jesus wash all of our sins away

We will own a Heavenly mansion one bright day

We all have an inheritance from a King

And unto us will be given many things

There will be no poor; no one will do without

Jesus will provide and on that you can count

We all have an inheritance from a King

And we can all go to that Heavenly scene

Jesus will place many jewels in our crowns

And we'll be as rich as anyone around

In essence, let's thank God for his sacrificial lamb today and learn more in God's word about our rights and authority through Jesus Christ. No matter what we are going through today, we are more than conquerors through Christ Jesus, let's develop a King mentality........we are royalty!

"The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life more abundantly." [John 10:10] is short ~ Sheree
