The Bible is God's Story:
Plan A - God alone is King.
Plan B - God accommodates Israel by granting it a human king.
Plan A - God is now ruling in King Jesus!
Luke 2:28-31 NIV
28 Simeon took him in his arms and praised God, saying: 29 “Sovereign Lord, as you have promised, you may now dismiss your servant in peace. 30 For my eyes have seen your salvation, 31 which you have prepared in the sight of all nations:
When we immerse, we posture our lives in anticipation of Messiah. King Jesus!
