Life is much more important than food, and the body much more important than clothes. Instead, be concerned with His Kingdom, and He will provide you with these things.
Luke 12:23,31

Family Bible Study - Christ the King

Gospel Passage
John 18:33 Then Pilate entered the headquarters again, summoned Jesus,
and asked him, “Are you the King of the Jews?” 34 Jesus answered, “Do
you ask this on your own, or did others tell you about me?” 35 Pilate
replied, “I am not a Jew, am I? Your own nation and the chief priests have
handed you over to me. What have you done?” 36 Jesus answered, “My
kingdom is not from this world. If my kingdom were from this world, my
followers would be fighting to keep me from being handed over to the Jews.
But as it is, my kingdom is not from here.” 37 Pilate asked him, “So you are
a king?” Jesus answered, “You say that I am a king. For this I was born, and
for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone who belongs to
the truth listens to my voice.”

1. We celebrate the feast of Christ the King. The whole point of life is to enter
into His Kingdom. How do we enter into His Kingdom?

2. The Son of God took flesh and was born of the Blessed Virgin Mary “in
order to testify to the truth about God the Father.” What do you think the most important truth is that Jesus came to testify to?

3. Jesus says, “Everyone who belongs to the truth listens to my voice.” How
hard do you try to listen carefully to Jesus’ voice everyday? How well do you
do those things that Jesus asks — in the readings of the Bible, in prayer —
every day? How well do you put what Jesus says into practice?
