HH, Sir Godfrey Gregg D.Div
“Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.” John 18:37
My Master has the wisdom of a true king. He has rich skills in planning and governing. He is never taken at a loss. When I am admitted to His palace and stand among His nobles, there is none of my hard questions which He cannot unriddle. Whether I ask Him about God, about sin, or about death and eternity — He has the right word to speak.
My Master has the power of a true king. There is nothing He cannot do. I bring Him my heart, from which all brightness and restfulness have departed, and He changes its midnight into noonday, and says to it, “Peace, be still.” I bring Him my life, which sin has wasted, and He transfigures it into the garden of the Lord. His miracles are as marvellous today, as they were in Galilee.
And my Master has the graciousness of a true king. He stoops to me in my beggary and destitution, my hours of temptation, my seasons of forlornness and despondency. When I venture on His love — He does not cast me out. When I make an appeal to His clemency — He crowns me with His loving kindnesses and tender mercies. He is the Good Shepherd — as well as the Monarch of my soul.
