Delight in the Reign of the Perfect King - Hebrews 1:3-9
Introduction: Our Distrust and Disdain of Authority
God's People Reject Him as King (Genesis 3, 1 Samuel 8)
God's Pattern for a King (Deuteronomy 17:14-20, Saul-Herod)
God's Perfect King (Hebrews 1:8-9, Psalm 45)
God's Perfect Kingdom (Revelation 22:1-4)
Application: Trust and Love the Reign of the Slain Sovereign (Hebrews 1:3)
Lord, the world is full of wicked rulers and wicked followers. Thank you for Jesus, the Perfect King who reigns now and forever in perfect righteousness and hatred of all that is wicked. Thank you that one day those trusting him will reign with him forever in a place where there is no more wickedness in us or around us. And help us, by your Spirit, to trust and love his reign now, remembering he was slain for our sins.
