The church proclaims that “Christ is King.” King of what? One answer is king of plans. “I know the plans I have for you,” God said to Jeremiah. “Plans for your welfare, not for your harm. Plans with a future with hope.”
Whose plan for you is like God’s? Whose plan is to be with you, for you and ahead of you all at the same time? Whose plan takes lead and makes it into gold? Whose plan for you guarantees that the worst thing won’t be the last thing?
The world can’t know nor can the church fully proclaim that Christ is King until He becomes the king of more of our lives. Until we exchange more of our plans for His plan.
Christ has a plan for our lives. A plan to reconcile our blessings and our blemishes. His love is king and His throne is mercy.
