The King's Everlasting Rule
Scripture: Hebrews 2:6–2:9
The King’s Everlasting Rule
Psalm 8: Humankind …
….was intended to be a special creature.
… was intended to be a creature of special privilege.
… was intended to be a creature of unique dignity.
… was intended as a creature of unrivalled dominion.
Jesus is the fulfillment of Psalm 8.
Jesus stepped down.
— Took on our frustrated humanity.
— Took on our suffering humanity.
God lifted Jesus up.
— Jesus is available at any time, anywhere.
— We can trust that our lowly bodies are now destined for glory.
— The way has been opened up for us to experience the grace and forgiveness of God.
Take Home Idea: By stepping down Jesus, the King, was lifted up and will reign forever!
