The Fourth King Is Coming…

Memphis, a city that doesn’t take itself overly-seriously, is getting ready for her fourth and most important King.

The Memphis City lecturer, Eddie Ogle, used to quip that Memphis is the City of the Three Kings – Elvis, of course, the King of Rock; B.B. King, the King of Soul; and Martin Luther King, the King of Conscience.

Now as December 25 arrives and the weather turns bleaker, the Bluff City decorates itself with all the signs of a royal arrival. Street-lamps and arcades are dolled up with scarlet red and white streamers. Powerful music booms forth from the usual secular media: “Hark the Herald Angels Sing, Glory to the Newborn King,” for the Fourth King is Jesus Christ and he has the answers we need. Time to make a little noise in his name, as the angels did so long ago (Luke 2:8-17).
