Jesus is King- Douggie Royer- Year 2 (2016-17) Volume #11

This Chaplain’s Corner was written by our Football Chaplain, Douggie Royer! Thank you so much for your words this week as we celebrate Thanksgiving!
Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe
Thanksgiving is knocking at the door, and we begin our Advent this Sunday, but before we stuff our faces and await the Newborn King, let’s take note of where we are right now.

Right now millions of Christians across the globe are rejoicing that Jesus is King.

Christians could always be doing that, but this week is special, here’s why…

This past Sunday, and all this week, our Christian brothers & sisters who observe the Church Calendar are Celebrating the Feast of Christ the King, also known as

The Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe,

Which celebrates the all-embracing authority of Jesus as King and Lord of all things.

Whereas I recognize that some of you may not use the Liturgical Calendar in your churches, we do hold to some things that are in the calendar: Advent, Christmas, Lent, Easter, and maybe even Pentecost Sunday. I didn’t grow up in a tradition that followed the Liturgy, but when I found out about Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe I just had to add it to my faith calendar.

There is one thing left to be done by our Lord, just one thing, and this Feast celebrates it as if it has already been done. The Lord has promised that He would make all things right, all things new, all things His, and The Feast of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe celebrates NOW what the Lord WILL DO on that great and Final Day.

Brothers and Sisters, this what you and I are longing for – we are awaiting the Day when King Jesus will call every single thing in the known and unknown universe to come and bow, in worship, at His feet.

As a meditation, read this aloud, slowly:


Our Lord

Our Lord Jesus

Our Lord Jesus Christ
Our Lord Jesus Christ, King

Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of
Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the
Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe

We are His.

He is our King.

Our King rules over all.

You are loved by The King. Hallelujah!!!
