King of Kings

February 14-April 1, 2018

How much would you have to trust someone to make them "king" over you? To give someone sovereign and complete control over your decisions, your resources, your future, even your life? For most of us - that's a level of trust we've not been willing to put into a person. It gets tempting to think that giving anyone power or authority is just asking for trouble.
 
And then, there's Jesus. Jesus boldly claims to be king, and even more startlingly, demands our surrender. "Repent and believe," He tells us. "If you love me, obey my commands," He urges. What do we make of his claim to the throne? Are we truly willing to surrender control over our lives in order to experience the Kingdom? In this series, we'll press into this hard question and examine this Jesus who claims to be King and asks for full rule and reign over our lives. Will we bend the knee to King Jesus?
