A Collect to Hear the Truth of Christ’s Kingdom

Lord Jesus, king of heaven and earth, give us ears to hear the truth of your kingdom, that we would listen to your voice and be transformed into those who live truly according to the laws of your reign, subjects of a kingdom not like those of this world, through you who sits at the right hand of the Father in the Holy Spirit over all creation. Amen. ‘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.”‘ – John 18:37
