Jesus is our King, our Lord and our Shepherd. The theme for today says that we are inheritors, in plural form, of the Kingdom prepared for us from the foundation of the world. Before we existed, God already prepared the Kingdom for us. What we need to do is also prepare for this Kingdom – which God prepared for us. The Kingdom started pure and good, but it was corrupted and tainted by sin. Now, there’s poverty, lack sickness, captivity, bondage. All the peoples of the earth are enslaved by sin, and even if man did something against God’s will, God still loves man, and share in his suffering. He is in the hungry, in the thirsty, in the stranger, in the naked, the sick, the prisoner, and the poor. Christ our King is on those people who are suffering. He is inside, not outside. He is not detached, but going through their struggles with them.
