Today’s celebration is officially The Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe.
I think that Americans in particular are a bit uncomfortable with such grandiosity. After all, we rejected the rule of a King nearly 250 years ago!
And we certainly we didn’t want to form a new country under a king or queen! No, just a temporary presider … a president.
But here we are, declaring that Jesus the Christ is our King.
Pilate asked him, “So you are a king?” Jesus answered, “You say that I am a king. I was born for this, and I came into the world for this: to testify to the truth. Everyone who is committed to the truth listens to my voice.”John 18:37
So if I want to follow Him, to listen to His voice … I want to declare Him as my King.
Jesus, show me how to follow You.
