Man, I’m pumped. Today is the Solemnity of Jesus Christ, King of the Universe. Sounds like something from Dr. Strange. And then in the Gospel today, the good thief says, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.” That we have a kingdom, that we have a king. We don’t have a king that wears a golden crown. We have a king who wears thorns. We don’t have a king that is lifted up above the world to lord over his kingship.
He is lifted up on the cross in blessing and sacrifice for us. And so be able to ask the question today, “Is Jesus the Lord over my life? Is Jesus the Lord over my work? Is Jesus the Lord over my friendships? Is Jesus the Lord over my family?” Because he is a king worth dying for, he is a king worth living for. The kings of this earth, the world leaders, social media influencers – they all go out of style. But the king of the universe, he’s eternal.
