And yet, Jesus still has all authority in Heaven and earth. Though the nations rage, one day they will give an account to the One who laid aside His glory and in humility, came to this dry, dusty planet to bring life to a people who were dying.
Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Him. If you have not searched for Him, then please call upon His Name. He will not turn away any who seek Him.
This Christmas, may the nations be His inheritance. May all the peoples bow before Him and acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord to the Glory of God the Father.
(Meredith Ludwig Curtis)
1 Why do the nations conspire[a]
and the peoples plot in vain?
2 The kings of the earth take their stand
and the rulers gather together
against the LORD
and against his Anointed One.[b]
3 “Let us break their chains,” they say,
“and throw off their fetters.” 4 The One enthroned in heaven laughs;
the Lord scoffs at them.
5 Then he rebukes them in his anger
and terrifies them in his wrath, saying,
6 “I have installed my King[c]
on Zion, my holy hill.”
7 I will proclaim the decree of the LORD:
He said to me, “You are my Son[d];
today I have become your Father.[e]
8 Ask of me,
and I will make the nations your inheritance,
the ends of the earth your possession.
9 You will rule them with an iron scepter[f];
you will dash them to pieces like pottery.”
10 Therefore, you kings, be wise;
be warned, you rulers of the earth.
11 Serve the LORD with fear
and rejoice with trembling.
12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry
and you be destroyed in your way,
for his wrath can flare up in a moment.
Blessed are all who take refuge in him.
