DAILY DEVOTIONS:

Nov

'Now and Forever'

Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe

He is the image of the invisible God,
the firstborn of all creation.

- Colossians 1:15

On the outskirts of Paris, far from the usual tourist paths, stands one of the more important churches in Europe. It is the Cathedral of Saint-Denis, famed not only for its Gothic architecture, but also for its vast collection of funeral statuary. Recumbent stone monarchs fill much of the space, most of them dressed in appropriate royal robes.

There are fascinating exceptions. Louis XII and Anne of Brittany's tomb is topped by images of them kneeling in prayer, fully dressed, but in a space below, we see them again, lying as in death, completely nude. It is a startling, sobering sight.

It's also a sight that reminded me that living under the robes of any worldly honor, power or possession is a creature just like me. Only one king--gracefully born into that mortal flesh but wearing the crown of glory forever--deserves my worship, only one is truly Lord of my life now and for eternity.

Jesus, Lord of my life, I praise and thank you today.

- Amy Welborn
