“The Cross or the Crown?”

For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and peace
There will be no end…
– Isaiah 9:6-7a

Well, by the time this posts, the elections will be over. Some folks will be beginning a new political phase, some will be packing up boxes. Political terms, however long will someday come to an end. Dynasties die, regimes are removed and monarchies fade

Okay, I couldn’t think of a word that started with “m” for that last one, but you get the point.

There is one Kingdom, however, which will never end – that of God in heaven.

Colonial Williamsburg once produced a drama called “The Cross or The Crown”, which depicted the struggle Thomas Jefferson went through during the days leading up to the American Revolution. As an English subject, he had a degree of loyalty to the king. However, as a Christian, he felt the king had gone so far as to demand an ultimatum. Jefferson, therefore, cast his lot with those who sought freedom from the crown.

We are all faced with that same type of decision at some point in our life. We can follow the things of this world or we can set our eyes on the Eternal Kingdom of God.

Choose wisely.
