We Have A King

“Pilate said to them, ‘Shall I crucify your King?’  The chief priests answered, ‘We have no king but Caesar!’ “. John 19:15. NKJV

Jesus is the King of kings.

Thank You, Lord, for ruling over us with righteousness and grace.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

“We have no king
but Caesar”

they said
before they knew

they had indeed
an eternal King

and that King
was You.

God bless you as you serve your King today!

Paying Taxes

“Is it lawful for us to pay taxes to Caesar or not?” Luke 20:22
“But He perceived their craftiness, and said to them, ‘Why do you test Me?'” Luke 20:23
“Show Me a denarius. Whose image and inscription does it have?” “They answered and said, ‘Caesar’.” Luke 20:24
“And He said to them, ‘Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s’.” Luke 20:25

As tax time approaches, it’s time to render to “Caesar” what is “Caesar’s”. There are laws, rules and accountants to all help with that. But what about rendering to God the things that are God’s?

Lord, help me to remember that everything I have is Yours to use anyway You want. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Rendering

My fingers curl
next they clench

but You gently pull
them loose again

in order for me
to give and receive

I need open hands
and a heart that believes.

Please Don’t Turn Away

“And He said to them, “Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.”  Matthew 22:21
“When they had heard these words, they marveled and left Him and went their way.”  Matthew 22:22

These men were so close to Him.  They were amazed by Jesus.  I want to shout out to them. . .stop them.  Plead with them to stay by His side and go His way.

Oh Jesus, I pray for all of us to encounter the wonder and awe of You today . . .and to never walk away.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Wow Factor

The wow factor
when we meet Jesus

isn’t meant to
put us in our place

but to draw us
closer to His.

Have you marveled at Jesus today?
