How can we show people today that Christ is our King?
by Renae Bauer
The Sunday before Advent is dedicated to the Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe, sometimes shortened to Christ the King. The day celebrates Jesus’ unending reign of salvation.
I invite you to reflect on the image below. The man offers several outward signs of his love for Jesus – his t-shirt and his tattoos of crosses and the words “Philip 1:21” (For to me life is Christ, and death is gain). Anybody who encounters this man will see he loves Jesus.
- How do others know I love Jesus?
- Does what is in my heart match my words and actions?
- Advent begins in a week. How can I strengthen my love for Jesus during the season of joyful waiting?
