Coming King

Yeshua,

Son of Man,

you came down,

and lived humbly among us,

unrecognized by your people

though you commanded your creation,

willingly stripped down of your title, dignity, and honor,

You suffered in excruciating pain,

and laid your life down for me.

Son of God,

you raised yourself up from the dead,

overcoming all the powers of darkness, sin, trauma, and pain,

obliterating the fear of death,

for you walked this earth in resurrected form,

eating fish, breaking bread, fellowshipping with those you loved,

went up in glory and light,

and will come back again as righteous Judge, conquering Lion,

You are the rightful, glorious King.

I love you Lord.

Amen.

You Came Once

O Lord,

I praise you and I love you,

Thank you for coming once,

the Lamb of God,

as the Son of Man, Son of God

to take away all my sins and give me eternal life.

You overcame death

and are alive right now seated at the right hand of the Father,

Thank you for coming to die for me.

I look to your second coming,

as the Lion of the tribe of Judah,

righteous Judge, King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.

I bless your name today,

your love, power, mercy, and grace infused

throughout all creation, and all things that are

right, true, beautiful, and good.

Amen.
