THE KINGSHIP OF CHRIST

 

Jesus proclaimed the arrival of the Kingdom of God and spent a great deal of his ministry helping his disciples and hearers to understand what this new kingdom was like.  Most of his wonderful parables begin with words like: “To what can I compare the Kingdom of God?”  Sometimes he says it’s like a mustard seed, or again liked the leaven in the dough. 

On no occasion does he say the Kingdom of God is like a powerful king sitting on his throne and ruling over his dominions.  The Kingdom of God is not imposed by force.  Rather God send his son to invite us to follow him along the way that brings us into the Kingdom of God.  It is the way of humility and service.

The Kingdom of God is not like the ordinary kingdoms of the world.  As the Preface of today’s Mass says, it is “a kingdom of holiness and grace, a kingdom of justice, love and peace.”  And our citizenship of the Kingdom is marked by the same qualities.   It is our daily living of Christian love and service that makes the kingdom a reality in our midst. 

Our vocation as Christians is to collaborate with God as coworkers in transforming the world into the Kingdom of God.  There is only one way to do this and it is Jesus’ way.  It is the way of self-forgetful love that is willing even to lay down one’s life for love of God and neighbor.   Jesus is finally proclaimed King while hanging on the cross. 

Pilate was shaken by his confrontation with Jesus and maybe that is why he had the inscription nailed to the cross that read, “This is Jesus of Nazareth, the King of the Jews.”
