“One of the most breathtaking concepts in all of Scripture is the revelation that God knows each of us personally and that we are in His mind both day and night. There is simply no way to comprehend the full implications of His love by the King of kings and Lord of lords. He is all-powerful and all-knowing, majestic and holy, from everlasting to everlasting. Why would He care about us—about our needs, our welfare, our fears? We have been discussing situations in which God doesn’t make sense. His concern for us mere mortals is the most inexplicable of all.” ― James C. Dobson.

Culture has crowned many kings. Henry Ford was the king of automakers. Michael Jackson is the king of pop. Richard Petty is the king of Nascar. Michael Jordan is the king of basketball.

The Bible speaks volumes about kings and lords. The words “kings” and “lords” are mentioned thousands of times in Scripture, many representing God. But “King of kings and Lord of lords” appears only three times. Three passages direct our attention to the fact that Jesus Christ is King of kings and Lord of lords. They are 1 Timothy 6:15: “For, At just the right time Christ will be revealed from heaven by the blessed and only almighty God, the King of all kings and Lord of all lords.” Revelation 17:14 says, “Together they will go to war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will defeat them because he is Lord of all lords and King of all kings. And his called and chosen and faithful ones will be with him.” And Revelation 19:16: “On his robe at his thigh was written this title: King of all kings and Lord of all lords.”

Given that Jesus rose from the dead, it becomes apparent who the King of Kings and Lord of Lords is. And we celebrate our risen King each Easter. Jesus really is King — over all. Jesus’ kingship is universal and absolute. You don’t elect Him or validate His reign. Nor is He a king whom you can ignore indefinitely.

The idea of Jesus being King of kings and Lord of lords means that there is no higher authority. His reign over all things is absolute and inviolable. God raised Him from the dead and placed Him over all things, “Now he is far above any ruler or authority or power or leader or anything else—not only in this world but also in the world to come. God has put all things under the authority of Christ and has made him head over all things for the benefit of the church. And the church is his body; it is made full and complete by Christ, who fills all things everywhere with himself” (Ephesians 1:21–23).

For many people, Easter is simply an event, a holiday. But for Christians, every day is resurrection day. Why? Because we worship, we love, and we live every day in the presence of a risen, living Lord Jesus Christ. So, every day is an Easter celebration for us. Every day is resurrection day.

On Easter, we need to honor and worship our King. We should be filled with awe at His majesty, authority, and power. Jesus, who loves us, deserves to be revered as the exalted King.
