Royalty

On my first day of college, the professor began reading off a list of names. He asked that when he called our name we stated what we would like to be called. When he got to "Neva Manweiler", in my typical smart aleck way, I said, "Your Highness". The professor was silent at first and then the entire class laughed.
Since most of us were small children we dreamed of being princesses, queens, kings, etc. While we as Americans do not have a monarchy, our country as a whole, is enamored with the British Royalty. That monarchy makes news almost as often as our television and movie stars. What is the appeal of royalty?
I think we like the idea of the grandeur and the prosperity. We like to think about living in a castle among wealth. We like the picture of oppulence and the idea that our very wishes would be carried out. I also think we like the relationship we would have with the ruler, the highest power of the land. And we like the concept of being different, instead of being one of the masses, we would be uncommon, unique, special.
I Peter 2:9 "But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God . . ."
Revelation 1:6 ". . .and has made us to be a kingdom and priests to serve his God and Father "
Revelation 21:10 ff ". . . and showed me the Holy City, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God. It shone with the glory of God and its brilliance was like that of a very precious jewel, like a jasper, clear as crystal. It had a great high wall with twelve gates and with twelve angels on the gates. . . . the city was of pure gold, as pure as glass. The foundations of the city walls were decorated with every kind of precious stone. . . .the twelve gates were twelve pearls, each made of a single pearl. The great street of the city was made of pure gold and was transparent like glass."

Isn't it great to be the child of the king?
