Summary: We all have to serve somebody or something. Do we serve ourselves or things or others or do we serve the Lord?

I have chosen this sermon, because when I told my 9-year old daughter I was submitting sermons, she remembered this one best.

"You may be an ambassador to England or France,

You may like to gamble, you might like to dance.

You may be the heavyweight champion of the world,

You might be a socialite with a long string of pearls.

But you’re gonna have to serve somebody, yes indeed,

You’re gonna have to serve somebody.

Well it may be the devil, or it may be the Lord;

But you’re gonna have to serve somebody.

You may be a state trooper, you might be a young Turk.

You may be the head of some TV network.

You may be rich or poor, you may be blind or lame.

You may be living in another country under another name.

But you’re gonna have to serve somebody, yes indeed,

You’re gonna have to serve somebody.

Well it may be the devil, or it may be the Lord,

But you’re gonna have to serve somebody.

You may be a construction worker working on a home.

You may be living in a mansion or you might live in a dome.

You might own guns and you might even own tanks.

You might be somebody’s landlord, you might even own banks.

But you’re gonna have to serve somebody, yes indeed,

You’re gonna have to serve somebody.

Well it may be the devil, or it may be the Lord.

But you’re gonna have to serve somebody.

Might like to wear cotton, you might like to wear silk.

Might like to drink whiskey, might like to drink milk.

You might like to eat cavior, you might like to eat bread.

You may be sleeping on the floor, sleeping in a king-sized bed.

But you’re gonna have to serve somebody, yes indeed,

You’re gonna have to serve somebody.

Well it may be the devil, or it may be the Lord,

But you’re gonna have to serve somebody."

Bob Dylan sang this song, "Gotta Serve Somebody" in 1979. He states a point of truth. We all have to decide who or what we will serve. Or as theologian Paul Tillich said, we have decide what our ultimate concern is in life. We come together today, because we serve the Lord. Amen?

Today is Christ the King Sunday. We recognized Christ’s Lordship and Kingship.

Christ the King Sunday was instituted by Pius XI in 1925 to celebrate the kingship of Christ as a way of combating the destructive forces of this age. It sounds much like our time, doesn’t it? It is the culmination of the church season. Next Sunday will be the start of a new church season with Advent. It is appropriate that the church years ends, points to celebrating the Lordship of Christ.

Our text from Revelation celebrates the kingship of Christ. It begins by saying, "Grace to you and peace from him who is and who was and who is to come." We come together celebrating the God of past, present and future, knowing that God holds all of these things in His hands.

Jesus is the ruler of the kings of earth, it states, the King of kings and Lord of lords (Rev. 17:14 and "The Messiah").

"To him who loves us and freed us from our sins by his blood, and made us to be a kingdom, priests serving his God and Father" Christ is worthy of praise and honor because of what he has done for us through his life, death and resurrection.
