Preparing for Christ the King in the Old Testament

Featuring Debora Holiday

November 23, 2023 | 31 min.

Do you every wonder what it means that Jesus is king? Our democracy gives us no point of reference to understand royalty, and church and state are separate. In this episode, Debora Holiday traces the idea of kingship throughout salvation history to help us welcome Christ the King into our hearts and lives.

Take Psalm 23 to Your Next Holy Hour

Pray: Come, Holy Spirit, open my heart and mind to hear your word today.

Read the Word: Psalm 23

(Read it in your own Bible to get the context, and so you can make notes)

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want;
     he makes me lie down in green pastures.
He leads me beside still waters;
     he restores my soul.
He leads me in paths of righteousness
    for his name’s sake.

 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
    I fear no evil;
for you are with me;
    your rod and your staff,
    they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me
    in the presence of my enemies;
you anoint my head with oil,
    my cup overflows.
 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
    all the days of my life;
and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord
    for ever.

Ponder the Word: Read several times, lingering where it touches your heart. What catches your attention? What do you hear the Lord saying to you?

Pray with the Word: Bring to the Lord what you have heard, and talk to him about it. Ask for his grace. Thank him for his loving care.

Live the Word: How does what you read touch your life? What can you do this week to put it into practice?
