The awards show last night, and the one to come!
Last night I watched an awards show. My better half and I were trying to see if our favorite football player was going to get an award we think he deserved. Truthfully, we didn’t know most of the people being honored but had to recognize that they really had done phenomenal work on and off the field. They deserved the awards they received.
What was interesting was the way the audience was cheering for each person that won an award. The atmosphere was charged with excitement as the night progressed. They knew these players and how much they deserved these rewards.
But when JESUS comes back, that is going to be a celebration, and many more people will be cheering for the King, and the praise will go on forever. Jesus deserves to be recognized for who He is – King of Kings, Lord of Lords, the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the bright morning star, the one through Whom all things were created and are held together, and the One with the Name that is above every name. Jesus, our savior and our God. And the honoree for the King of the universe is … Jesus!
Now if that is not awesome enough, here’s the kicker. (No pun intended!) Jesus, the honoree of all times, will recognize what we have done for Him and for the Kingdom. At the end of that awards ceremony, may we hear the concluding remarks from His lips – “Well done, my good and faithful servant. … Enter into the joy of your Lord.”
“His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.” (Mat. 25:21 – KJV)
