Happy Monday Morning!
Tell him this is what the Lord Almighty says: ‘Here is the man whose name is the Branch, and he will branch out from his place and build the temple of the Lord. 13 It is he who will build the temple of the Lord, and he will be clothed with majesty and will sit and rule on his throne. And he will be a priest on his throne. And there will be harmony between the two.’
Funny how we tend to divide up life into different quadrants—sacred and secular. Religion and politics. Keep them separate, we say, because we don’t want government overtaken by potentially dangerous ideologies. In our fallen-ness, we are wise to be mistrustful of our own bent toward abusing almost any kind of power. But Jesus needs no such caution. He sits on a unique Throne- one on which He receives utmost worship and from which He dispenses true and perfect justice. Our great High Priest- who provides us unprecedented access to a Holy God. Our King above all Kings- who will make all wrongs right, all broken places whole again. One day, as J.R. R. Tolkien wrote, “Everything sad is going to come untrue!”
What worship will you offer Jesus today- in word, in action, through your life?
Talk about what it means to worship Jesus- to say (and live) what is true about Jesus.
