Reign of Christ & Commitment Sunday – Create with the King of Love
The book of Revelation begins by celebrating the Almighty God, who spans all of time. Similarly, Jesus is celebrated as the firstborn from the dead who rules over the world’s rulers. He is the one whose return we eagerly await. Jesus is given kingly titles: Anointed One (Messiah), Son of God, Son of Man. Jesus is given these titles, even though he is nothing like an earthly king. In John’s gospel, the story of Jesus and Pilate presents two different ways of exercising power: through force or with love. Jesus’ authority comes from the truth to which he bears witness, and those who recognize the truth voluntarily listen to Christ’s loving voice. We look forward to the day Christ reigns, knowing it will be a nonviolent, creative reign of love.
