The Word transforms us. Christ the King is the last Sunday of the church year – the day we remember that it is the living Word of God that we encounter here in worship. It is the Word that changes us – reforms us to live as God’s people, to exalt Jesus – the incarnate and living Word of God as the highest power in our lives. To put anything – anything – above that is to fall into the same sin as those who would lock that word up and hide it away. This is not just for ordained pastors and deacons. No matter the work we do, to live the story means that we can see our lives through the lens of God’s story and find our identity in the love and grace of God.
