Psalm 93 NIV
‘The Lord reigns, he is robed in majesty.’

Gracious God, as we have just celebrated Christ the King Sunday and Advent approaches, we give thanks for the gift of Jesus, God’s Son. We take a moment to reflect upon who He is as a King and what His Kingdom stands for. We remember that He was not born in a palace, but in a lowly stable. He did not carry weapons to fight for power, but exercised His authority with great wisdom, in acts of healing and forgiveness. He did not come to be a dictator, but gave a voice to the voiceless and the vulnerable, and spoke out for His Kingdom values; equality,  justice and peace. And yet He is a King and His Kingdom will always reign. And so Lord God, thank you that in Jesus Christ, you call us to serve as He served, to give as He gave and to love as He loved. May we witness to His Kingdom here on earth. In His name we pray, Amen
