Christ the King

2 Samuel 5:1-3; Psalm 122; Colossians 1:12-20; Luke 23:35-43

The mystery of faith

The painful humiliation of Jesus is there for everyone to see. The mocking of the Jewish leaders, the insults of the soldiers, even the jeering of the thief alongside him. All this only adds to his excruciating agony on the cross. Humanly speaking, this must be the lowest point of his life. And yet we believe that at this very moment he is truly revealing himself as our king. On the cross he is raised up as king of the world. An extraordinary paradox! A profound mystery! But this is the very heart of our Christian faith.
