Come and see the mountain! Now you might be thinking – this is all happening too fast! This morning did you open up your bulletin and think, is it Advent already? It isn’t even December yet!
Christ the King is the one who is in charge of everything. This can be difficult to see at times because his kingdom is not of this world. Even though this is true, it doesn’t mean that he has no control. Jesus controls all things for the good of his church. One day he will end this world and, finally, every knee will bow before the King of Kings.
A passing glance at the news and current events would show one thing – no one seems to be in control. On this Christ the King Sunday we remember that Jesus is, indeed, in control of the world. He does so for the good of his church. Join us this Sunday as we close out the church year worshiping Christ the King.
The wonder of Christmas is on full display this year as we sing with the angels, stand in awe with the shepherds, and look on with love next to Mary. That special feeling that comes with Christmas and all of it’s trappings is an empty emotion without the theology of the Christ Child. God took on human flesh for one purpose. That purpose was your salvation.
Our God is the Ruler of the Universe. In these Last Days it sure doesn’t look that way. Times are rough for Jesus’ Christians and his church. None of this means that our God is any less powerful than he ever was. We cry as the church has for thousands of years, “Come quickly, Lord!” We worship Christ the King.
When King Dave and his people had the opportunity to raise money and the necessarily supplies to build the temple, they responded. It was with joyful generosity that all the materials were gathered. David was never able to see the building completed. That was left for his son, Solomon. Join us this Sunday as we explore David’s heart and why he could be so joyful and generous.
