Our Sacred Roots: The Priesthood of All Believers
K ingdomtide : A S eason of C hrist ’ s H ope
Savior now lives and is seen in the world through the words and deeds of his people (John 14.12; Heb. 11; Rev. 17.6).
The second feast day at the end of this season, the Feast of Christ the King (also called the Feast of the Reign of Christ ), is the last Sunday of this season, and the last one before Advent. According to Scripture, our Lord Jesus Christ will return and finish the work he began on the Cross, to judge the world and save his own. The Feast of Christ the King points to that day when the kingdom of this world will become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, who will reign forever and ever (Rev. 11.15ff.). How appropriate to end the season after the coming of the Holy Spirit with a feast which honors the future reign of our risen Savior, the true Lord who one day will reign alone and supreme! May our hearts’ cry resound with the prayers of the saints of the ages in saying, “Maranatha!” Even so, Lord Jesus, come soon!
Awaiting that Great Day, Rev. Dr. Don L. Davis
