"When he was invited to say a word of greeting to a large audience, a black man, Dr S. M. Lockridge, gave this spontaneous, electrifying statement."
The Bible says my King is a seven way king. He's the King of the Jews - that's a racial king. He's the King of Israel - that's a national king. He's the King of Righteousness, He's the King of the Ages, He's the King of heaven, He's the King of Glory, and He's the King of Kings and He's the Lord of Lords, that's my King! Well! I wonder do you know Him?
David said, "The heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament showeth His handiwork." My King is a sovereign King. No means of measure can define His limitless love. No far seeing telescope can bring into visibility the coastline of His shoreless supplies. No barrier can hinder Him from pouring out His blessing.
He's eduringly strong, He's entirely sincere, He's eternally steadfast, He's immortally graceful, He's imperially powerful, He's impartially merciful. Do you know Him?
He's the greatest phenomenon that has ever crossed the horizons of this world. He's God's Son, He's the sinner's Saviour, He's the centrepiece of civilisation, he stands in the solitude of Himself, He's august and He's unique, He's unparalleled, He's unprecedented, He's the loftiest idea in literature, He's the highest personality in philosophy, He's the supreme problem in higher criticism, He's the fundamental doctrine of true theology, He's the total necessity of spiritual religion, He's the miracle of the age, He's the superlative of everything good that you choose to call Him, He's the only one qualified to be an all sufficient Saviour, I wonder if you know Him today?
H supplies strength for the weak, He's available for the tempted and the tried, He sympathises and He saves, He strengthens and sustains, He guards and He guides, He heals the sick, He cleanses the lepers, He forgives the sinners, He discharges the debtors, He delivers the captives, He defends the feeble, He blesses the young, He serves the unfortunate, He regards the aged, He rewards the diligent, and He beautifies the meek. I wonder if you know Him?
Well, my King is the key to knowledge, He's the well spring of wisdom, He's the doorway of deliverance, He's the pathway of peace, He's the roadway of righteousness, He's the highway of holiness, He's the gateway of glory. Do you know Him?
Well... His office is manifold, His promise is sure, His life is matchless, His goodness is limitless, His mercy is everlasting, His love never changes, His word is enough, His grace is sufficient, His reign is righteous, His yoke is easy, and His burden is light!
I wish I could describe Him to you!
Yes! He's indescribable! Yes He is! He's indescribable! Yes! He's incomprehensible! He's invincible! He's irresistible! Well you can't get Him out of your mind, and you can't get Him off of your hand, you can't outlive Him, and you can't live without Him. Well the Pharisees couldn't stand Him. But they found out they couldn't stop Him. Pilate couldn't find any fault in Him. The witnesses couldn't get their testimonies to agree, Herod couldn't kill Him, death couldn't handle Him, and the grave couldn't hold Him.
Yes! That's my King! That's my King! Yes! And Thine is the Kingdom, and the Power and the Glory, forever and ever and ever and ever ... How long is that? ... and ever and ever, and when you get through with all the forevers, then amen! Good God Almighty. Amen!
