|A Christ Caring People Who Gather Around Word and Sacrament, Yoked Together, In Personal Service to Christ in World Wide Missions
When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the angels with Him, then He will sit on His glorious throne. Before Him will be gathered all the nations, and He will separate people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. And He will place the sheep on His right, but the goats on the left. Then the King will say to those on His right, “Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.” Matthew 25:31–34
This Sunday has also been known as Christ the King Sunday. We acknowledge that Christ is both King of Creation and the Shepherd King of His people. Though the image of Christ as King may cause us to fear, we remember that the same Lord who sits on His eternal throne is the Lord whom we know as the Savior who suffered for us on the cross. He comes not to condemn us but to separate the sheep from the goats, the faithful from those who refuse Him, and to lead us to the eternal light and life He has prepared for us. As we rejoiced in the joy of His resurrection from the dead, so we come to this day to anticipate our own resurrection with Jesus, wearing the glorious bodies He already wears, to live with Him in His eternal kingdom.
