CHRIST THE ETERNAL AND UNIVERSAL KING

Liturgical Colour: 

Dan. 7:13-14; Rev. 1:5-8 & Jn. 18:33-37

A coronation ceremony is a great occasion for national pride. It is marked by a beautiful and elaborate ritual whereby sovereignty is conferred on the new monarch. The people acclaim their new king, pledge their unswerving loyalty to him, and experience a sense of unity and belonging as his subjects under his rule. Today we celebrate the greatest kingship of all and the only one that really matters - the kingship of Our Lord Jesus Christ.

THE KING’S VICTORY OVER EVIL

Liturgical Colour: 

Luke 23: 35-43

When Christ died on the cross Pontius Pilate wrote this inscription, “Jesus of Nazareth, the King of the Jews.” For a crown He was given not jewels but thorns; for royal purple, His blood; for a sceptre, a nail; for a throne, a cross. The Chief Priests objected to the title Pilate had written because Jesus was no King of theirs. They would never dream of giving Him allegiance.
