Have you see the this year’s model model? Automated seats, heated seats, modern lighting, a place for your iPod, ultra quiet and turbo modes, a touch screen remote control and even an built in air freshener! Sounds like the latest luxury automobile, but no – it’s the latest toilet from Kohler! No, way you say? Look for yourself! A toilet that is evidently so incredible that according to the photographs in the advertisement, it is made for the living room!
I have seen a lot of different “thrones” in my day, from the outhouses in the hill of West Virginia to those holes in the ground in Kiev, but this has got to be the greatest throne of all time! (ok , really I have can’t recall seeing any outhouses in West Virginia, but I can say I have seen them in Kentucky!) Can you imagine taking care of business on this thing. You just might rule the world!
Well, not really, that fancy several thousand dollar throne is probably just going to provide the same thing the others do- I place to take care of , well , you know.
But there is a throne that really is the greatest in the world, and you have the opportunity to seat down right next to it. You see when it comes to thrones, I think I would rather spend my energy acquiring the one whose foundation is based on “righteousness and justice”.(Psalm 89:13-15, New International Version, ©2011), the one that is used by the the Christos himself.
31 “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. 32 All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. (Matthew 25:31-32, New International Version, ©2011)
And what is so great about that throne is that there is a promise that you can be near it! and you can sit with the Lord on the greatest throne of all time. One that does not come from Kohler, but from the Creator of the world.
20 Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.
21 To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I was victorious and sat down with my Father on his throne. 22 Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” (Revelation 3:20-22, New International Version, ©2011)
For some reason I bet that throne comes with a few more features then the Numi!
