Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.1 Timothy 1:17(NASB)
What a beautiful and comforting description of our God and Father. He is the eternal, immortal, invisible King of the ages, the Ruler of time, the Sovereign of eternity, the Governor of the earth, and the Creator of the universe. He neither sleeps nor grows weary, upholding all with the might of His power. He is in full control of all that was and is and is to come, for He knows the end from the beginning and has scheduled every day of our lives.
Though we were dead in our sins, at enmity with God and eternally separated from Him, in His grace and love He stooped down in the Person of the Lord Jesus Christ and rescued us from slavery to sin and the eternal death sentence under which we were all placed. No surprise that Paul who considered himself to be the least of the apostles and chief of sinners, penned this beautiful and comforting description of our God.
When we sit quietly and consider these words and the awesome and weighty meaning behind them, all we can do is fall at the feet of our Saviour and worship Him: "To the only God our Saviour, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion, and authority before all time and now and forever."
Let us spend the rest of our days giving honour and praise and glory and blessing to God. Let us join together and worship and glorify our Lord, for He alone is our God and Saviour: "Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honour and glory forever and ever. Amen."
Loving Heavenly Father, thank You for loving me enough to visit Your creation in the Person of the Lord Jesus Christ. Thank You that He loved me enough to die for me on the Cross so that I might live with Him into eternity. Thank You that Jesus truly is my glorious King of the ages, deserving of all my love and praise through time and into eternity. Praise Your glorious name forever. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
