Are You Ready for Royalty?
From Pauper to Princess
The wife of Prince William of England, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, is a beautiful and famous princess.
She is highly regarded as royalty, the wife of the next King of England.
Before she married the prince, she was not royalty, certainly not by blood. But immediately she married the Prince, she became royalty, equal to any royal in England and abroad.
Now imagine, a high-powered delegation from the Royal Family of Great Britain visits your church, the Princess included. They walk in with all the pomp and grandeur of royalty and offered seats specially reserved and set apart from the congregation.
You then go outside to buy a drink from a vendor outside, and to your surprise, you meet the Princess there, angrily exchanging words with the vendor.
What will be your reaction? What will be your first thought? I can bet, you will be wondering why a princess would behave like that!?
Natural and Spiritual Standards of Royalty
Even in the natural, we have standards for Royalty! If we understand as Christian sisters, that we are royalty, Princesses of God, we will also have standards!
Anyone who accepts Jesus Christ as the Son of the Living God and Lord of their lives becomes Royalty. But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name (John 1:12).
As we are baptized and led by the Holy Spirit, we become Sons of God (Romans 8:14). Male or female according to His word we are all ‘SONS’ because of the blood of Jesus.
The Born Again Royals
We have to come to the realization, that we are NOW children of the King of Kings, we are His princesses, and we must move from thinking as paupers, commoners without any ties to royalty.
When we were of the world, we were cut off from our Father in Heaven, Creator of the Heavens and Earth.
Now we become born again, the blood of Jesus, makes atonement for us, and allows us to become the children of God, therefore we must cling unto Romans 12: 2 – And do not conform to this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
