Revd Tim Heaton Lock Down Thought for the Day
Day 18 – Sunday, 22 November – Christ the King
On this final Sunday of the Church’s year we reaffirm Christ’s sovereignty over all of creation. Everything in the whole universe owes its allegiance to Christ the King.
Everything is subject to his rule and law because everything in creation belongs to him. “All things have been created through him and for him” (Colossians 1:16). Everything is Christ’s and therefore everything is holy. It’s not just this day, Sunday, that is holy – every day is holy. It’s not just the church building that is holy – every building is holy. It’s not just the Bible that is holy – every book is holy.
We shouldn’t separate the secular from the sacred because everything is sacred. Everything belongs to Christ, who is ruler and judge of all.
