Christ is our king.  He desires ardently to rule our hearts, because we are children of God.  But we should not try to imagine a human sort of rule - Christ does not dominate or seek to impose himself, because he “has not come to be served but to serve.”  His kingdom is one of peace, of joy, of justice.  Christ our King does not expect us to spend our time in abstract reasoning: he expects deeds, because “not everyone who says to me.  Lord, Lord!, shall enter the kingdom of heaven; but he who does the will of my Father in heaven shall enter the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 7:2`1)

There’s this cathedral that’s still being worked on, and the workers have rigged a “cage elevator” inside
so they can get material up and down to the upper floors.
A characteristic of these “cage elevator” is that the doors(gate) must be closed manually for them to be “called” to another floor.
One day one of the workers, Peter by name, takes the elevator to the top floor, and it is subsequently needed on the first floor by the sexton.
Unfortunately, Peter forgot and left the door open.
After the sexton rings for the elevator a couple times, to no avail, he yells up for the worker to send the lift back down.
Visitors to the cathedral were treated to this sight:
The sexton of the cathedral, head tipped up, yelling up to the heaven: “Peter!  CLOSE THE GATES!!!”
