This idea of a king is central to the Christmas story. The wise men asked Herod, the king of that day, where THE King was born. Herod would not allow his power to be challenged. And even now, we fight over who will be the king of our lives. We all want to be king of our own kingdom and we struggle to give up our throne to anyone else. Only one king can sit on a throne, the throne of your life. Many seek a god and king they want him to be. We create a god of our liking who we can be king over. We resist Jesus being the only king of our life. If Jesus, the Son of God, the true King was born on Christmas, we can’t be passive. He either is the Lord and King or he is not.
