Podcast #200: “How Many Kings” by downhere

Play episode

I’m Michelle Nezat and I hope to inspire you to discover and meditate on God’s Word through the songs you’re listening to on the radio.

I have been keeping Jesus small. I have found myself saying things like, “He started as a baby.” Fortunately for me, I allowed Scripture to reshape my thinking this week. Inspired by downhere’s song, “How Many Kings,” I considered what sort of king Jesus is to emphasize the tremendous sacrifice it was for Him to come to earth as a human (much less a baby). But He did NOT “start” as a baby.

Join me in Colossians 1 to put the magnifying glass on just a handful of characteristics of King Jesus.

On this episode I discuss:

  • Taking a B.I.T.E. out of Scripture – this week’s Bible Interaction Tool Exercises include:
    • Make a list
    • Repetition
  • Considering a familiar story from a new perspective
  • Jesus was an “unlikely hero”…or was He?
  • Jesus is anything but small – Colossians 1:15-20
  • Everything in our list was true of the baby lying in a manger
  • Jesus was God
  • Jesus holds the highest rank
  • Jesus created His kingdom
  • Before there was anything…King Jesus was
  • Jesus is not an uninterested, disconnected King
  • Jesus surpasses all others…He is illustrious, renowned, celebrated, and supreme
  • So what is our response? Bring gifts that acknowledge WHO He is – Matthew 2:1-11

This Week’s Challenge

I hope you’ve been reading the Christmas story over and over this season. If you haven’t pulled it out lately, read it again and consider all that Jesus was (even as a baby). Consider this Mighty King that came to earth for you and me. Read Colossians 1:15-20 again and make your own list as a review. Did you catch the BITE of repetition along with the BITE of making a list? Let the truth of God’s Word sink in.
