Christ’s kingdom

The LORD says to my Lord: “Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet.” [Psalm 110:1]

 

Jesus quoted this when he challenged the Pharisees (see Mark 12:36). This psalm shows us that Christ being seated on the right side of the LORD, which reveals the honor given to Christ. As we read on, this psalm reveals the role of Christ as a king, judge, and priest. The verses towards the end show the destruction of the enemies of Christ. In contrast, the followers of Christ, Matthew Henry wrote, “shall attend him in the beautiful attire of holiness” (see verse 3).

 

When the day of Christ’s reign arrives, may we be found on the right side.
