A Crossroads

Sun, Jul 29, 2018
The LORD says to my Lord: “Sit at my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool.” The LORD sends forth from Zion your mighty scepter. Rule in the midst of your enemies! --- Psalm 110:1–2 (ESV) Our culture has a very limited picture of Jesus, doesn't it? He's the guy in a stain glass window. He's the one with a lamb around his shoulders. He's the kind teacher with a child sitting on his lap. He's the wandering peasant telling interesting moral stories to those around him. How well do these cultural versions explain the Christ of the scriptures? This week we close out our summer series Songs of the Savior by looking at one of the most quoted and referred to Psalms in the New Testament, Psalm 110. This is a Psalm that Jesus himself uses to point to his nature. It's a Psalm that the writer of Hebrews quotes to teach about Jesus' position. The picture that it paints throws a rock through most of the culture's stain glass window pictures of Jesus. Take a few minutes and read it through before Sunday.
