Jesus the King

Dear friends: “Are you the king of the Jews?”, Pilate asks Jesus. Was it a question that arose from a sense of insecurity that threatened Pilate’s power? Or was Pilate repeating the popular opinion about Jesus who had seen His power by healing the sick and the suffering, cleansing lepers, feeding the crowds and even raising the dead back to life? “Yes, I am a king. I was born for this. I came into the world for this, to bear witness to the truth”. Jesus said, “my kingdom is not of this world”. The kingdom of Jesus is a kingdom of truth. He is the way, the truth and the life. The kingdom of Jesus is a kingdom of holiness. Jesus delivers us from evil. He died on the cross to save us from the slavery to sin. He poured on us His spirit to make us holy. The kingdom of Jesus is the kingdom of peace, even at His birth the choirs of angels sang of peace. Let us celebrate today the feast of our heavenly King, Jesus, by following Him.
