The Reign of Christ - Sermon, November 23, 2014

Matthew 25: 31-46                                                                             November 23, 2014

When you think of Kings, Queens, royalty and nobility, what comes to mind? You may think of palaces, the royal family. People who are well dressed who are escorted from one place to another. These are typically people who hold political and economic power and influence. When you think of the characteristics of royalty, what comes to mind? Perhaps, you may think of people who are unwavering, stern, cool and calculated. These are people who also need to be likeable and appeal to the greater population, so they may even be charming, have a sense of humour and try and say the right things to get people on their side. This doesn’t mean that they will actually follow through on promises or what they say, but that they have said what needs to be said, to get popular approval. In our own day and age in the 21st Century we may even think of royalty as people who make public appearances or commemorate new buildings.
