Humble King: a sermon from 24th November 2019

“Lo, he comes with clouds descending” – a fantastic hymn for this day from Charles Wesley, but as you listen to the lyrics, are you comfortable with the language? Power, glory, claiming the kingdom, thrones, people, nations – the language all of being under subjection to Jesus the King.

But Jesus was a king who was different: he doesn’t conform to the pictures usually associated with kingship, with earthly glory and power. Rather, the King we follow is a servant king.
