What Does it Mean to Have a King?

Biblical Text: Matthew 21:1-11

The first Sunday in Advent often carries over a theme from the previous week – the Kingship of Christ.  But instead of concentrating on the fulfillment of the Kingdom, Advent places us back in our temporal surroundings.  It reminds us that the Kingdom comes humbly.  It comes by invitation and promise.  It comes one heart at a time.  And yet it is a Kingdom.  We are called to watch.  It has a King.

This sermon is a meditation in a busy week of what it means in our day to have a King.  And I think that most realistic analogy is when we talk identities.  This is an advent pondering on putting on Christ.
