King - A Second Time.

KINGIf there is one thing that most scoffers have in common, they demand rights and proof. Some of these people have said that Christianity just didn't work, when they gave it a try. I've scoffed and said the same exact thing. But what were we really trying?

How could we have called Jesus our King and still dictatorially disregard His rule, by upholding a personal-rights ultimatum?

If you have never read a medical waiver, my advise is to not read it. Just sign it, and be done with it. You are signing all your rights away, so just embrace it. Once you have signed it, you have agreed to not complain if the doctor cuts your head off during hang-nail surgery on your small toe. You are basically saying that you are at the surgeon's mercy to fix what he can fix with none of your rights to interfere or grumble about his methods. But, refuse the waiver; and you refuse the cure.

The first time that I made God my Lord, I screwed it up. I did not sign the waiver. I held my rights.

What would you say about someone that grumbles and calls a surgeon fraud because he couldn't cure a thing? What if this same miserable patient didn't tell you that the surgeon did not cure them because they refused to trust his fix, and refused to sign away their rights? Does their criticism of the surgeon hold water, or did they simply count the costs as too high?

I was just such a patient.

1 Chronicles 29:22
They ate and drank with great joy in the presence of the LORD that day. Then they acknowledged Solomon son of David as king a second time, ...

Who was the real cause of my misery? What was the cost of my cure?

When I became desperate, I found that even the right to be well, is not too much of a cost to surrender. I acknowledged Jesus, KING a second time.
