Christ The King by Dr. Dan Wuori

Scripture of the Week: John 18: 33-37


Message: Christ the King

I thought today we might take a moment to talk about the calendar. What is a calendar – what does it help us to do?


That’s right. A calendar is something we use to keep track of time – but instead of measuring minutes and hours it measures the days of the week and the months of the year.


You might not know it, but we follow a special church calendar too and this week we are celebrating the very end of it with a special day. We call it The Feast of Christ the King – and it is the last Sunday before we begin a new church calendar year with the four weeks of Advent, which is the time we prepare for the birth of Jesus at Christmas.


Have you ever heard Jesus called a king? There are several different places in the Bible where he’s called one – and this week’s Gospel reading is one of them. Why do you think he might be called that? What does it mean when we call someone “king?”


A king is a leader of his people. That makes it a pretty good name for Jesus, doesn’t it?


Let’s pray.

Dear God,

Help us to prepare our hearts for advent and the coming of our king.

Amen
