We are Royalty

There’s a special red disk in the entryway floor of St. Peter’s Basilica. Almost 1,700 years ago it was in front of the altar, and it’s where kings like Charlemagne knelt for their coronation. In the new St. Peter’s, which is about 400 years old, the disk was moved right to the entrance. It was decided that pilgrims who enter St. Peter’s should be reminded of who we are.

Something that kings knelt on, is there for every Christian to stand on. When you were baptized, you were anointed priest, prophet, and king. 1 Peter 2:9 says, “But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.” 

My friend Jeff Cavins recently told me of a woman whose daughter had Down Syndrome and died at a young age. She used to tell her daughter, “you’re a princess!” So the little girl told everyone she met, “I’m the daughter of a great king!” One day she looked intently at her mom and said, “Mommy, you have a crown, but you don’t see it.”

That’s you. Remember who you are, a child of God.
