The King Who Failed

Matthew 27:27-31, New International Version

27 Then the governor’s soldiers took Jesus into the Praetorium and gathered the whole company of soldiers around him. 28 They stripped him and put a scarlet robe on him, 29 and then twisted together a crown of thorns and set it on his head. They put a staff in his right hand. Then they knelt in front of him and mocked him. “Hail, king of the Jews!” they said. 30 They spit on him, and took the staff and struck him on the head again and again. 31 After they had mocked him, they took off the robe and put his own clothes on him. Then they led him away to crucify him.

Behold the King!

The last Sunday of the church year emphasizes the Christian’s final status. Today we gather in thanksgiving that we have an eternal king that protects us now and into eternity. Give thanks to the Lord, the King, who will come and raise his harvest home!
