Reflection

The readings for this Sunday give us a complete image and reasons why Christ Jesus is indeed the King of the Universe. The first reading gives us a historical example of how David became the King of Israel. This is from the Old Testament, which sets up a stark contrast in how, we of faith, know how Jesus becomes our true King. It is through our faith that we understand how Jesus became man so that we could witness and believe in His teachings. The second reading from Colossians, we read beautiful texts, in human terms, of the wonders of Christ and His presence among us in this universe.

He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For in him were created all things in heaven and on earth, the visible and the invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers; all things were created through him and for him.

Colossians 1:16

In a juxtaposed imagery, we read in the Gospel of his time on the Cross. It’s ironic that the sign placed above Him on the cross read the king of the Jews. Perhaps mocking those who determined his demise. How little did they realize that he would become much more than the man on the cross, he would be King of the Universe, our Savior.

“Amen, I say to you, today you will be with me in Paradise.”

Luke 23:43
