Kingship of Jesus | Sermon, Mar. 25

Redeemer Presbyterian Church, Charleston, SCOn Palm Sunday last week at Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Charleston, SC, our senior pastor continued our Matthew sermon series with Matthew 4:1-11. Though our culture values preeminently our own personal perceptions of the world, He reminded us that we Christians should have a cristocentric worldview: Jesus is King whether we acknowledge it or not. He’s just as much a King in the wilderness or desert, as in our passage from Matthew when he was tempted by the Devil. And he’s just as much a King when he’s riding a donkey into Jerusalem, as he did so many years ago on Palm Sunday. Our temptation today is the same as Jesus’ temptation by the Devil: We’re tempted to be satisfied with Satan’s lesser plan. So we must remember that Jesus gives real bread to sustain us; he’s not the king of cheap salvation; and he’s come to give peace and patience. Listen to the whole sermon here.
