Reign of Christ is King Celebration Introduction:
So much political social construct in Daniel! Today many people around the globe experience political domination, terror, and persecution. God the Father gives sovereignty to Christ the King to empower the oppressed and pursue just rule on earth as we anticipate in heaven.
Our focus is on the Lord as Creator and Sustainer of that Creation. Ps. 93:1. Although this big picture is not always visible to our mind’s eye as we meet and deal with life’s challenges, we turn our attention to this belief on Christ is King Sunday.
In Revelations we turn our attention to the timeless glory of God, the faithful ministry of Jesus Christ, the benefits of our salvation, our hope in Christ’s glorious return, the fate of those who reject Christ, and God’s rule over every earthly dominion. Theologian Rev. Dr. Greg Carey.
Jesus intentionally evades a direct answer to Pilate’s question regarding kingship. Pilate is exploiting the unfortunate dilemma that is facing Christ right now. Jesus knows that Pilate is using the moment to disturb the stability of Jewish political society. John 18:36.
Reign of Christ is King Celebration Scripture:
His dominion is an everlasting dominion that shall not pass away, and his kingship is one that shall never be destroyed. Dan. 7:9-14.
The LORD is king, he is robed in majesty. Ps. 93:1.
I am the Alpha and the Omega says the Lord God. Rev. 1:8.
My kingdom is not from this world. John 18:36.
Lord is King Psalm 93 song
Shepherd of Israel, hear our prayer
as your Son heard the plea
of the criminal crucified with him.
Gather into Christ’s holy reign
the broken, the sorrowing, and the sinner,
that all may know
wholeness, joy, and forgiveness. Amen.
All Things Bright and Beautiful
Cecil Frances Alexander (1848).
All things bright and beautiful,
all creatures great and small,
all things wise and wonderful,
the Lord God made them all.
As the shepherd who cares for the flock, O God,
you guide all things through Jesus
whom you have exalted over all creation as king.
Hear the prayers we offer in his name
for the creation he cherished
and that you entrust to us.
Look upon your people who rejoice in your justice and mercy,
and grant that the prayers we make
may reveal Christ’s reign in our time. Amen.
Jesus, Name Above All Names.
Nadia Hearn. (1974).
Jesus name above all names
Beautiful Savior glorious Lord
Emmanuel God is with us
Blessed Redeemer living Word.
you remembered the oath you swore to David
and so established a glorious realm of salvation
through Jesus of Nazareth, his heir.
Train our eyes to see your righteous rule,
that, standing firmly in hope
before the powers of this world,
we may heed your voice
and be constant in your truth. Amen.
Now thank we all our God.
Catherine Winkworth. (1636).
Now thank we all our God
with heart and hands and voices,
who wondrous things has done,
in whom his world rejoices;
who from our mothers’ arms
has blessed us on our way
with countless gifts of love,
and still is ours today.
Most High God, majestic and almighty,
our beginning and our end:
rule in our hearts
and guide us to be faithful in our daily actions,
worshiping the one who comes
as Savior and Sovereign,
and who lives and reigns with you
in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God. Amen.
Give Thanks with a Grateful Heart
Henry Smith (1970).
Give thanks with a grateful heart
Give thanks to the Holy One

We are all stewards spreading the Word of Jesus’ blessings for His people.
