“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ (Matthew 25 v 34-37)
Jesus is and always will be King.
Matthew had started his gospel with Jesus in the line of King David; Magi have sought him as King; the Sermon on the Mount is focused on the Kingdom of heaven; on the cross he is mocked as King; at his return nations will gather before the King; and as King he will usher people into his kingdom.
It is those who have made Jesus their King during their life on earth. They made Jesus the centre of it all, their focus and the reason for doing life. “You gave me; you invited me; you clothed me; you looked after me; you came to visit me.”
ME is KING.
Make sure the ME is Jesus and not you or anyone else.
