Sermon — Pr. Tony Sikora — Christ the King Sunday
The Savior has taken up His cross for you. Will follow Him? The Savior walks into death for you? Do you grieve for Him? “Do not weep for Me,” He says, “Weep for yourselves and or your children.” Behold the Man who would be your king. He stammers through the streets of Jerusalem bearing a burden that is not His own. He is condemned, a condemned King, because humanity would have no king but Caesar and those in Caesar’s likeness. For all politics is the exercise of power and humanity covets power, worships power. But, it is not Caesar’s throne Jesus desires, for Caesar sits on a throne of lies. It is not the armies of Rome with whom our King battles. His is not a kingdom of power as the world desires. His is a kingdom of grace. No, our King is not of this world, nor is His Kingdom.
