The Psalter of Jesus: Behold Your King // Psalm 72

Pastor Mark Bergin
Our world is broken. Nothing holds together. Everything dies. The order and authority that we struggle to impose on this fractured reality amount to temporary band-aids, at best. More often, our efforts to fix the mess only make matters worse. Nevertheless, God so loved this world that he sent his Son into its mire. And Jesus humbled himself, entering even the most devastated quarters of this burned out place. He bore the shame of sin, heard the lies of Satan, and knew the darkness of death. Yet, he did not enter these things only to endure them. He entered to defeat them. Jesus undid the power of shame. He crushed the head of Satan. And he flooded the black of death with light. Jesus imposed order and authority in ways we cannot. For there is only one true King. And his kingdom is boundless.
