The King and I

William and Kate are getting hitched, super.

The BBC reliably informs us that 'Royal engagement delights world' which is quite a statement, I don't know how big a survey they carried out but I'm sure they're right.

I love a good wedding so I'm waiting impatiently for my invite.  After all Kate Middleton is a commoner and so am I, we are kindred spirits, birds of a feather.

I am genuinely pleased for them that they are getting married. Being married really is a blessing or at least that is what I have found. It's great to partner with someone, to take care of them, to love and be loved.  (Of course it's not the path for everyone.)

Unfortunately this media love-in won't last for ever.  The poor girl will be turned on, ridiculed and ostracised just like every other celebrity out there.Even the Royal family of whose country Kate Middleton is a citizen may turn on the girl, they may not, but they have form.   

She can withstand it but she'll have to be strong and her husband will need to be steadfast and upright. 

If only there was a monarch who was just, benevolent, merciful, honest and forgiving.  If only we had a King who would do anything for the citizens of His Kingdom.  A King who would not find it beneath Himself to go and meet, talk to, live with the common man.  If only there as a King who loved his subjects so very much that even for the lowest, the jobless, the broken, the scum, even for these would give up everything, would die, for their good.

Where can such a King, a King of kings be found?

Live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light. For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

Colossians 1:10-14


Paul Baloche singing 'Glorious'.   It's a song about Jesus Christ who 'stands above the rulers of the earth'.
