Excerpt from Reigning from the Cross. A sermon for First Christian Church Nov. 24, 2013.
When life gets us down (and if we live any length of time at all in this world, it most certainly will), we need to remember the great truth of this day—Christ the King Sunday: This King is reigning, suffering, sacrificing and giving all that God has to give from the cross.
God does not make mistakes. God knows what God is doing. God is in control. But God’s throne is not made of silver and gold. God’s throne is made of wood and nails. God wears not a crown of jewels but a crown of thorns.
