God. Abba. Father.
Thank you for ordaining your Son, Jesus, to be our King. Yes, he is the one about whom the psalmist writes. He is the one who sits alongside you, Lord. He is Jesus, our Messiah. As Peter quoted this psalm on the Day of Pentecost: “All Israel, then, know this: There’s no longer room for doubt – God made him Master and Messiah, this Jesus whom you killed on a cross.” (Acts 2:36). We join in thanking you for the great sacrifice of Jesus. May these words speak directly to our heart as they did to the people of Jerusalem 2000 years ago.
We join with all of Israel in proclaiming that you will rule the earth. Your glorious power is seen inside an empty tomb! And we thank you for the assurance that we, your children, have access to that same power through your love! Help us to tap into that strength today, Lord! For you, Jesus, are the great high priest. You are crowned Lord of All!
Your ways are true and just! We proclaim: “God is ruler of heaven and earth. God has put his son, Jesus, on the Throne of Grace.” You bring judgment to the nations. We worship you, Jesus. We praise your name! You are love and grace and forgiveness and hope and joy!
Thank you, Jesus!
