Sermon Short for November 25th, 2018
A CLEARER PICTURE OF JESUS
This is Christ the King Sunday or Reign of Christ Sunday. What a loaded term – Christ the KING. What does it mean?
I fear that all too often Christ’s followers – we CHRISTians – understand the KING title to mean that he is to rule the world with a Christian outlook; Christian rules; Christian life-styles. And we CHRISTians are expected to make this type of world dominion our calling. We are called to make the whole world CHRISTian.
Be careful. When Pilate asked Jesus about his kingship, Christ’s response was “My kingdom is not from this world …”
We need to get a clearer picture of Jesus and what he meant about kingdom.
