Many people are content to acknowledge Christ as a historical figure or moral man, but nothing more. Scripture, however, declares that Christ was born to be King. He reigns over all creation—and, as Alistair Begg notes, His rule extends over our lives as well. When we respond to the Gospel invitation to bend the knee to Christ’s lordship, we are transferred into His heavenly kingdom and transformed into His likeness.
7Of the increase of his government and of peace
there will be no end,
on the throne of David and over his kingdom,
to establish it and to uphold it
with justice and with righteousness
from this time forth and forevermore.
The zeal of the Lord of hosts will do this.
