Christmas in the Psalms: Christ is the King
December 05, 2021 | John Durham
Because songs are attached to Christmas, we are going to go to the book of Psalms this December and discover the Christmas Story there!
Psalm 2 It’s easy to trust that God has your life in His hands if you trust that God has the whole world in His hands. That’s the message of Psalm 2: Assurance that no one can stand against God’s King
THE CHAOS OF REBELLION1-3
We view divine authority as bondage and oppression.THE ULTIMATE GOAL OF SINFUL PEOPLE IS TO BREAK AWAY FROM GOD.
But human rebellion against God is a self-inflicted wound. TRUE FREEDOM IS THE RESULT OF JOYFUL OBEDIENCE TO GOD’S PERFECT WILL
PT FORSYTHE: The first duty of every soul is to find not its freedom but its Master. True freedom is only found when we are subjects to the King!
- THE RESPONSE OF GOD4-6
III. THE COMING OF THE KING 7-9 God tells His Son, and tells us, that Christmas is not just of a story of a child coming to save, but of judge that is coming to defeat sin forever! It’s why the Christmas carol admonishes us to fall on our knees! This coming King will break the rebellion and smash the work of the Enemy!
- THE CHOICE OF OUR RESPONSE10-12
Psalm 2 ends with a statement of blessing: “Blessed are all who take refuge in Him.”
In this season of expectation and celebration of the coming of the Savior of the world, join us as we take a look at the Psalms. The promise of the coming Messiah is spoken and sung all throughout the Psalms.
