How would you treat a king? A king is deserving of honor, respect and obedience. An earthly king might even demand these things. However, as Christians we serve a higher king.We serve Christ the King. He is not just king of Heaven and Earth, He is King of our hearts. If we are to follow Him and be with Him in Heaven, we must follow His Law. Though He is the highest king, he does not impose himself on us. It is up to us - our free will- to decide to follow Him and His Law.
What is his Law? The Bible? The Ten Commandments? The Two Great Commandments? It is a mix of all these things. As He once said, "Be perfect, as your Heavenly Father is perfect." That's a tall order to live up to. But possible. Very possible. God gives us all the things we need. He gives us the Church. We have our priests. He gave us the sacraments. He gave us Himself on the cross.
When we go to church every week, we are there to not only worship our Heavenly King, but we are given the renewal of the strength to strive to be worthy of His presence through the sacrament of Holy Communion. As always, He provides everything we need. We just need to say, "Yes God. I will serve."
What will you say to your King?
