In Need of a King

In those days there was no king in Israel; everyone did what was right in his own eyes. – Judges 21:25

When you read the last few chapters of Judges, you can get pretty disgusted. The stories found there are full of lies, rapes, and murders. At this time in Israel’s history, sin was common, and shame was not. Does it sound familiar? Things today aren’t much different, are they? Perhaps the reasons are similar, as well.

In those days there was no king in Israel and everyone did what he wanted. Well, it seems to me that we have a president, but we do not have the King. We have a congress, but we do not have the King. We even have a lot of judges, but we don’t seem to have the King. Perhaps we need better government, but more than anything, we need the King!

Whatever we must endure in order to see our need, and to embrace Him, it will be worth it in the end.

The Lord is King forever and ever; nations have perished from His land. – Psalms 10:16
