Our King is Reigning Now
The last Sunday of the Church Year looks to the promise of eternal life, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. But while the fulfillment and reality of heaven are still in the future, the Word of God wants us to know and to take comfort in the fact that Jesus, our King, is already ruling and reigning the universe now. Though the darkness of sin and fear and death continues to lurk and to tempt, Jesus Christ continues to be the light of the world, the light no darkness can overcome. The last word is that we do not fear because God has rescued us and transferred us to the saving, loving, secure reign of His Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord.
