Our King reigns from the Cross in glory. Although we rightly take part fully in the civic and political life of our nations, following the words of Psalm 146 we “put no trust in princes.” It’s always tempting to place all our hopes in individuals or political programs, but that is dangerous and often idolatrous. The law of God must be the foundation of society - and devotion to the Cross our hope.
