Message from Augie

         

The Glory of Jesus Christ our King isn’t something we merely sit back and admire.   It envelops us, and its majesty transforms us, until we become Christ like through its presence and power.

         On this last Sunday of the liturgical year, many tongues will sing “Christ Jesus Visitor, Christ Jesus Ruler, Christ Jesus Lord and Redeemer.”   For the Son of Man is coming in his glory and all his angels will be with him.  He will sit on his glorious throne, and all peoples will come before him.  Let the trumpet sound!

On this day, we do not look at the  little ways in which the Holy Spirit speaks -  through the smell of popcorn, the labor of climbing a mountain, or the planting of onions.  This feast lifts us to the majestic, toward the awesomeness of God.  All those who await us in heaven have vibrated with this glory.  They have seen Christ the King.

           Have you gotten a taste of that glory - in a dream?   On the edge of a song?  In the radiance of a sunset?   In the joy of a meal?  We don’t believe based on nothing.  God has spoken.  God has spoken to us.

The One we celebrate was so tiny at the beginning of this adventure.  Today, he is grand as Christ the King.  It is  as though the coo of a newborn baby has swelled into the Hallelujah Chorus.   The silence of a grain of sand has become the roar of the Pacific Ocean.   The whisper of a gentle breeze has become the rumble of an earthquake.  REJOICE!

In gathering the nations, the King wants our wholehearted “YES!”  Have we given a cup of water to a little one?   Have we fed the hungry?   These actions are not just a garment thrown over our grubbiness.  The trumpet blasts to transform the whole being.

            SO THE QUESTION:  WHAT ONE GRACE CAN I ASK FOR TODAY TO SOLIDIFY MY WILL TO BE WITH JESUS?
