Devotionals Daily: A Year with Jesus

From The Hope of Christmas by Jack Countryman

Anointed and Eternal

Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; A scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdom.

You love righteousness and hate wickedness; Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You With the oil of gladness more than Your companions.

—Psalm 45:6–7

            An unmistakable sense of joy fills the air. The crowd’s excited anticipation is unmistakable. Everyone in the realm is joining in this celebration of the King’s reign. The almighty God has anointed Jesus, our Savior, to rule—with justice and uprightness—over all history.

            As He reigns for eternity with unwavering and holy righteousness, King Jesus will bring joy and gladness to His people and, more important, glory and honor to His Father. The King of kings and Lord of lords will come as a Bridegroom seeking His bride to reign forever with joy and gladness.
