Today is Christ the King Sunday, and we are reminded that Jesus is on the throne. Are you ready? His painting the picture of Him as the Glorious King separating the sheep from the goats really drives home the point that there is a difference between those who follow Jesus and those who do not. That difference relates both to who His people are (identity) and what they do as they live out their identity and are moved to action. Ready or not, here is the question: In what ways does your life reflect who you are as a part of Jesus’ flock? (What things in your life contradict that identity you have in Jesus?) And, how does belonging to the King of heaven and earth move you to action in this world?
