Ahhhhh. Homecoming week. Coronation, dress-up days, and pep rallies are all big parts of homecoming week at my school. My favorite part of homecoming is coronation, when the homecoming queen and king are chosen. I sit on the edge of my seat and bite my lip as I wait in suspense to hear who receives the honor of becoming homecoming queen and king.
It’s a shame, though, that only one boy and one girl can be queen and king. Why can’t everybody be royalty?
Sometimes, I feel like I’m insignificant. That I’m a nobody. That I don’t matter in the grand scheme of things. Maybe you feel that way too at times?
I’m tired of feeling insignificant. I forget who I am– who WE are. We are sons and daughters of the King. We are His princes and princesses.
This type of royalty isn’t like homecoming queen and king. No, we don’t need to be chosen by anyone except God for this. We don’t need the votes and approval of man to be royalty. It’s not about who we are– it’s about Whose we are.
“For you are all children of God through faith in Christ Jesus.” -Galatians 3:26.
Galatians says we are ALL children of God. Not just the missionaries and the pastors, the speakers and the writers. Everybody. That includes the sinners, the liars, the cheaters, and those who give into temptation. Though we make mistakes, we are all perfectly loved sons and daughters of the King.
We all are special because we belong to the King.
We are His marvelous, unique creations. We don’t need to prove that we are “royalty material” to others. We already are royalty. Because we are the children of the King.
