On the Road to Jesus' Coronation

“Our good King, the Lord Jesus, the ruler of all creation, has indeed returned and come to restore his good intentions for creation. He has come to judge evil, pay for our sinful rebellion and establish his reign of peace, love and justice. The end to the bitter reign of sin, death and Satan has been pronounced through Jesus’ cross and resurrection. Jesus is on the way to his final coronation on the last day, when the trumpets will blow, the dead in Christ will rise up, and every knee will bow at the name of our King, the Lord Jesus. And now here we are, still on the road to Jesus’ coronation with the good news that the King has come.”
