Today’s devotion is based on Psalm 2:10-12. “Now, therefore, O kings, be wise; be warned, O rulers of the earth. Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest He is angry, and you perish in the way, for His wrath is quickly kindled. Blessed are all who take refuge in Him.”
No earthly ruler ever came to power in the way King Jesus did. There were no armies locked in battle, no carefully negotiated treaties, only the King's dreadful, humiliating death. But it was not the end! On Easter morning, his tomb was empty. Our King has risen from the dead and reigns in glory!
And so we worship our King whose blood has washed away our sins. With gentleness and respect, we invite others to join us in declaring, by the Spirit's power, their allegiance to the King who died to save them.
Please pray with me the prayer for today: Jesus, we worship You as Lord and King. In You alone, we have forgiveness and the gift of eternal life. May we proclaim to others the hope You have given us. Amen.
