The kingdom which Jesus brings and which lasts forever is not an earthly kingdom. It is a heavenly kingdom and rule; it is the Church. The Church is the kingdom of Christ which cannot be shaken, eternal in the heavens.
We have true peace and true comfort, even in this sinful world. We have a true and righteous king who dwells among us for our good, who reigns to our abundant blessing. Today He is with us, and He will remain with us throughout this new year and unto all time. He is our righteousness and our peace, even Jesus Christ our Lord.
