The King Is Coming!

The Kingdom of God is a major theme in God’s holy history, from the house and lineage of David to David’s greater Son and Lord, whose birth we anticipate in this season of Advent. This series will focus on the appointed lessons from the Old Testament prophets, who spoke from the perspective of their own times under the kings of Israel and Judah, with all their human foibles and failures. Yet the Word of God through these words of the prophets speaks of a greater king to come, whose kingdom will have no end.

Our lives as God’s people in Christ are “lived under Him in His Kingdom,” as Luther put it—under the righteous rule and reign of Christ our King. Christmas celebrates his birth and coming among us, even as we pray as He taught us, “Thy Kingdom Come.” May our Advent worship help us prepare and rejoice, for the King is coming!
