Thinking Like a King

The astounding “upside down” pattern of Christ’s government


  • Topic:


In 1799, the French military leader Napoleon Bonaparte sized political power of France, soon becoming its emperor. During his coronation, in a display of pomp and arrogance, Napoleon took the crown from the Pope and crowned himself. This self-crowned king is a great picture of how the flesh works in our life—always seeking to rule, master, control, and wear the crown. But this is completely opposite as to how Christ works. In God’s “Upside Down Kingdom” the first become last, the least become greatest, and we discover life in the midst of death. Christians are called to think like a king—the True King—which means we must become humble, a lowly servant, and not seek our own gain. In this sermon, Pastor Eric Ludy compares the thinking of two kings—Napoleon and Jesus Christ—and exhorts us to spurn the coronation of Napoleon (i.e.: flesh) and instead follow the six baffling secrets of Jesus’ coronation.
