31 Meditations for Advent and Christmas
“The King Who is to come; O come let us adore Him.”
1st Day: WHO IS OUR KING?
Our King is Jesus Christ, God and Man. The name Jesus indicates His Divine nature. For Jesus means Saviour (“Thou shalt call His name Jesus; for He shall save His people from their sins”– Matt. i. 21). Now from our sins none can save us but One who is Himself God; none else can pay the debt due for man’s sin. Hence He who is our King is also our Saviour; and He who is our Saviour must be God, the God of infinite majesty, infinite power, and infinite knowledge. This is why before the name of Jesus every knee must bow; because the name of Jesus is the name of God. If men glory in having a noble King, how much more ought we to rejoice in having as our King the Omnipotent God and Lord of Heaven and earth.
