S01 E12 The King & I


In this episode, we wrap up the Kingly Office as the last of the Trilogy for the laity. What does it mean for Baptized Christians to participate in Christ’s Kingly Office? And what does that look like in practice? That is what we are going to explore in “The King & I.”

The Scripture passage that inspired "the King & I" is from Daniel 7:9-10, 13-14. The Scripture passage that glues the entire reflection on the Priest, Prophet & King Trilogy is from Isaiah 50:4-9.

Catch you in Season 2 on Jan.6 2022 (Thursday). Thank you & God Bless!

Key Takeaways:

  1. To be a king, is to govern or to rule. We must overcome the reign of sin in ourselves.

  2. We should model after Jesus Christ, our Servant King for whom "to serve is to reign." To serve our neighbout is to serve God.

  3. Our call to the Three Fold office of Priest, Prophet & King is the same call to be a deisciple of God.

  4. A disciple who does not pray is no disciple. The only way to know God is to have a deep relationship through a deep attention to God.

  5. Let the language of Faith falls naturally on your lips.

  6. God is the one who instructs and gives you strength.

  7. If God is on our side, who can condemn us?
