When Scott Morrison called the election for May 18 on Thursday we all once again became king makers. So many are now asking “What kind of King do we need?”. Maybe a better question might be “What kind of King do we already have?”.
When Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a donkey it was his coronation parade. In that journey he declared that He alone is the King we need, even if he is not the king we want. A king who will lay down his life for our salvation, a king who will serve his Father in heaven before he will serve us or himself, a King who will continue to rule because he has been appointed to that role by the very one who created us. When we know we already have a king maybe we may be a little kinder and wiser regarding the earthly kings He gives us.
