This Sunday is the Reign of Christ Sunday for the church. It is the Sunday before Advent. It’s an opportunity to acknowledge the amazing, life altering, awesome Lordship of Jesus over all things and everyone.
I chose three passages for they speak to us of the supremacy, wonder, power, and extravagant love of the Lord Jesus.
I encourage you to read these passages on this Thanksgiving Day that you might pause and give thanks for Jesus, our Lord and Savior.
The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. (John 1:14)
For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross. (Colossians 1:19-20)
And being found in appearance as a man,
he humbled himself
by becoming obedient to death—
even death on a cross! (Philippians 2:8)
Know that you are deeply loved by the Lord Jesus Christ. Give thanks!
