Leading from values so others will walk passionately with God to grow and bear fruit.
English royalty hold lavish ceremonies to establish their positions, often spending months on elaborate preparations. When Queen Elizabeth II was crowned in Westminster Abbey in London, she rode in a gold coach pulled by eight magnificent grays.
However, the throne of an earthly king or queen, cannot compare to the glories of the King of kings. If we took away the royal trappings from any human sovereign, he would look just like one of us. His honor is derived from ceremonies and the homage paid him by other people, which can be removed in a moment. He may have the power of an army behind him, but in himself, he is a sinful, imperfect human just like you and me.
God's reign is different. God does not derive His right to rule from anyone or anything. No title was bestowed on Him by another, and there is no higher authority anywhere than His. The great I AM always does what He knows is best and answers to no one. His reign is so magnificent that we cannot even comprehend any part of it.
God's rule is supreme, paramount, and absolute. He has power to do anything that needs to be done. He is present everywhere so no one can hide from Him or escape His scrutiny. He is all-knowing, so there is nothing about which He is unaware. Amazingly, this great and sovereign God loves you and me unconditionally, caring for the smallest need of the least of us.
Your View of God Really Matters ...
Do you struggle with pride? Today, stop focusing on yourself and go worship the King of Kings. When we truly see Him as the majestic Sovereign of the Universe, pride loses its grip on us. Pride results from focusing on self. Humility is the natural result of focusing on God.

Some might give their lives for good people, but God sent His Son to die for sinners, including the ones who put that Son on the cross. No higher demonstration of love is possible.
