This Sunday at Bethel
– Christ the King Sunday, Nov. 23
The season of Pentecost concludes with the celebration of Christ the King. As Americans, we aren’t familiar with kings except perhaps as they appear in history books or fairy tales. So a better name for this Sunday might be “Reign of Christ” Sunday, for that is what it is about.—Christ is the one who reigns and rules over the earth and over our lives.
Christ’s rule is not like that of other kings or earthly powers, for Christ rules from the cross,. He doesn’t lord his power over us, he lords it “under us”—taking the role of a servant, sharing his life with us. That’s another sign that he is the one ruler who is completely trustworthy ruler, one we can follow in life and death.
