First Scripture Reading: Isaiah 45:14-25

Sermon Text: Philippians 2:9-11

As we prepare to worship the Lord in Word and sacrament, consider these words from Dr. Michael Horton:

Only on the basis of the resurrection can we say that the righteous and peaceful dominion of humanity has been restored. It certainly cannot be discerned from the daily headlines or from the state of the Church throughout the world. Yet it has been recovered and fulfilled in Christ as our Living Head. By his sanctification we are sanctified, and by his reign the world is assured its participation in the cosmic glory that he has already inherited in his investiture [enthronement] as “King of kings and Lord of lords” (1 Timothy 6:15). His investiture at the right hand of God is a reward for his meritorious obedience (Psalm 2:8-9; Matthew 28:18; Ephesians 1:20-22; Philippians 2:9-11).
