Sermon Quotes: "The Lord Reigns"
“He takes a part of it and warms himself; he kindles a fire and bakes bread. Also he makes a god and worships it; he makes it an idol and falls down before it.” Is. 44:15
“All may worship him, but the motivation is as important as the manner. Yahweh expects reverence, submission, holiness, and awe of his divine majesty and presence.” William VanGemeren
“The Lord’s enthronement is no new thing, for it dates back to the beginning of time. He became king of the earth when the earth was made. What is new is the song that proclaims it to the nations that do not yet walk in Israel’s light.” Michael Wilcock
“Where God rules, his humblest creatures can be themselves; where God is, there is singing. At the creation ‘the morning stars sang together’’ at His coming, the earth will at last join in again; meanwhile the Psalter itself shows what effect His presence has on those who, even through a glass, darkly, already see His face.” Derek Kidner
“Let us joyfully receive the gospel and its Author. Let none be reluctant or linger. Christ’s work is a work of redemption from sin, from wrath, and from wretchedness. He is light, and life, and salvation. His reign is like a morning without clouds. Let joy seize the highest notes of exultation as it proclaims to the world the glorious mysteries revealed in the gospel.” William Plumer
