after services and sufferings, to give law, to give judgment. It is a remaining posture: he sits like a king for ever.
All his enemies are now in a chain, but not yet made his footstool.
And his kingdom, being set up, shall be kept up in the world, in despite of all the powers of darkness.
Has the gospel of Christ been to us the power of God in to salvation?
- Has his kingdom been set up in our hearts?
- Are we his willing subjects? Once we knew not our need of his salvation, and we were not willing that he should reign over us.
- Are we willing to give up every sin, to turn from a wicked, ensnaring world, and rely only on his merits and mercy, to have him for our Prophet, Priest, and King?
- Do we desire to be holy?
