Allegiance to the Reign

Abiding in the Reign

Reign of Christ, Christ the King Sunday, Year C

These lectionary readings present quite the juxtaposition for Reign of Christ/Christ the King Sunday, which is the concluding week of the Christian liturgical year. When we think of Christ’s lordship, the Colossians 1 passage is an obvious choice, as it speaks to the preeminence of Jesus and his Lordship over all creation. At the same time, Christ is one who was crucified like a standard criminal, offering forgiveness up until his final breath. Put together, these scripture readings paint an image of Christ as our crucified God who reconciles the whole world to himself through his death and Resurrection.

Offertory Prayer

God of Creation, we come this morning, bringing our humble gifts, celebrating the reign of Christ, our King – not just in the kingdom that is to come, but in his reign in our hearts. What could we withhold from him, who is our life, our light, and our redemption? More than our money in the plate, help us to give our whole selves, all in for Christ’s ongoing work of compassion and healing. Help us to make our loyalty to his reign known in our giving and also in our living. In the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen. (Colossians 1:11-20)
