God delights in and is faithful towards His Christ - and we His people ought to do so as well
We strive against foes - but Christ gives us victory.
Sin requires atonement in blood, but our King has paid the price
In Christ, we may enjoy true and everlasting reconciliation with God and with each other.
Sin - though forgiven - may have consequences that are far-reaching and painful.
Our sin may be great - but God's grace is greater!
The king we need is one who extends faithful love to the undeserving
The King we need is one who establishes God's city - defeats God's enemies - and secures God's presence for God's people.
Like our better King, we must lay aside our self-interests and desire the glory of God and the good of His people.
The King we need is one who rules righteously - executes justice - and is consumed with the glory of God.
