May 22 – Worship the King

Psalms 95, 97-99

I have never lived in a country ruled by a king. So the concept of God’s kingship requires a little thought for me. What is it like to be under total rule of another? What’s it like knowing everything I think is mine really belongs to the one on the throne, to do with as he wills. What is it like to not be in charge of my life?

The psalms I read today refer to God as King several times. Here is what spoke to me as I consider my King:

The Lord reigns. Let the earth rejoice. Let the people tremble. The strength of the King loves justice. Shout joyfully before the King, the Lord. He is exalted far above all gods. For the Lord is a great God and a great King above all gods. 

Today is Sunday. It’s fitting that as I enter God’s house to worship Him this morning I have these words on my lips:

O come, let us sing of joy to the Lord, let us shout joyfully to the rock of our salvation. Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving, let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms. (95:1-2)

What a privilege we have of worshiping the King of Kings, our Lord of Lords, our Creator, our Savior.

 

A Moment of Praise

I was reading my MacArthur Daily Bible this morning for March 28. Moses prophesied concerning the coming Messiah, and Jesus told us that he is that one!

“The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from your midst, ” Moses said in Deuteronomy 18. And in Luke 4, Jesus read from the book of Isaiah: “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me… to preach… to heal… to proclaim…” Then he said: “Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.”

The whole Bible is about Jesus, isn’t it? Every page, every verse points us to the Savior.

He is our priest, our prophet, our shepherd, the way, truth, and life, the sacrificial lamb, King of Kings and Lord of Lords. He is God in human form who went to the cross to buy me back. He is love. He is holy. He never leaves or forsakes us. Nothing can separate us from his love.

He died on that cross once and for all, that WHOSOEVER believes in him will have eternal life. He died and rose again. He went to heaven to prepare a place for us.

And one day, HE’S COMING BACK with the sound of a trumpet to take us home.

Praising God today!
