...is so we may be kings like Jesus.
In a world that thirsts for power and might it’s important to remember
that we’ve been baptized into the greatest king the world has ever seen.
Jesus is a king who never mixed words, pandered, or sought approval.
Jesus is a king who sought out the most lost and forsaken and gave them
hope. Jesus was a king who made his servants
into friends. Jesus is a king who washes away the grime and dirt from
our sin-stained feet. Jesus is a king who laid down his life to free
his subjects. Jesus is a king who could’ve saved himself but chose not
to for our sake.
Congratulations, you baptized, you’ve become a king. Now go rule a Jesus did.
That Jesus calls us to lead this world through humility and service is yet another reason Catholics baptize.
