Friends in Christ Weekly Message
November 22, 2003
Dear friends, tomorrow is Christ the King Sunday. I offer these selections from the weekly lectionary readings for your reflection. -Bill Samuel
Our Lord, you are King!
Majesty and power are your royal robes.
You put the world in place, and it will never be moved.
You have always ruled, and you are eternal.
The ocean is roaring, Lord! The sea is pounding hard.
Its mighty waves are majestic,
but you are more majestic, and you rule over all.
Your decisions are firm,
and your temple will always be beautiful and holy.
Psalm 93 (CEV*)
As I continued to watch the vision that night,
I saw what looked like a son of man
coming with the clouds of heaven,
and he was presented to the Eternal God.
He was crowned king and given power and glory,
so that all people
of every nation and race would serve him.
He will rule forever,
and his kingdom is eternal, never to be destroyed.
Daniel 7:13-14 (CEV*)
Jesus answered, "My kingdom doesn't belong to this world. If it did, my followers would have fought to keep me from being handed over to the Jewish leaders. No, my kingdom doesn't belong to this world."
"So you are a king," Pilate replied.
"You are saying that I am a king," Jesus told him. "I was born into this world to tell about the truth. And everyone who belongs to the truth knows my voice."
John 18:36-37 (CEV*)
