Christ the King Sunday is the columniation of the church calendar year. We pray relentlessly for Jesus to come and reign as King of kings and Lord of lords and create the eternal new heaven and the new earth. Next week is the First Sunday of Advent, and we pick up the plea of Scripture, “Even so, Lord Jesus, quickly come!” That prayer ought to be on our lips perpetually, and that hope should govern all our thoughts. Prayer is the prosthesis, the support that helps us stand firm as we live persistently, faithfully, until Jesus comes again.
- Luke 18:1 - 8
