Today we see what Jesus’ kingship is about, and it’s quite the opposite of the sort of monarchy that we might see, say, in the Downton Abbey film: Fulfilled is now what David told / in true prophetic song of old, / how God the nations’ King should be; / for God is reigning from the Tree. Jesus our King has given up his life so that we might win eternal life with him.
Pray that Jesus may be king of your heart.
Give thanks for the work and witness of the Episcopal Church in the Philippines.
