Capsule for the Day
King! Kingdom!... not of this world... but for this world. He came not to save us from this world, but to save us through this world. For this world, with all its "imperfections" is created by God. He is King, not just of heaven, but also of earth. King! Kingdom! Human and Divine!
We long for the coming of the Kingdom... Thy Kingdom come... Does Kingdom make the King or is it the King that makes the Kingdom? "All things were created through Him and for Him... in Him all things have their being". Kingdom! King! Creation! Is the King, God with us - Emmanuel?
King with us... Kingdom. But very often, not with the "perfect us". He was called a friend of sinners... interesting! He died between two criminals... not a surprise! He excused our sinfulness on the cross - Father forgive them, for they know not what they are doing... King!
