Message: “Singing the Lord’s Song in a Foreign Land (Psalm 137, Matthew 2, Psalm 2)” from Dr. David Carey Dixon

Singing the Lord’s Song in a Foreign Land (Psalm 137, Matthew 2, Psalm 2)

Who’s reigning in your household? And in your life this new year? Who’s on the throne of your heart? We want to talk about kings this morning; although the title of the message says, “Singing the Lord’s Song in a Foreign Land,” the underlying question here is, “who’s your king?!” This question came up as far back as the early days of Israel when the people looked around at other nations and decided they wanted to be more like them! (That’s dangerous!) In fact, they thought that to have a king like other nations was the solution to all their problems. Of course, in effect they were telling God they didn’t want Him for their King – they wanted a visible human king, and it was the beginning of so many problems, since the first king (Saul) turned out not to have the spiritual maturity for the job. And it’s so important for us to realize that we don’t have the spiritual maturity to be king of our own lives! But as you’ll remember, their second king set a higher standard – a man after God’s own heart – in spite of some serious flaws and failures that later revealed he didn’t have the maturity to rule God’s people either. But God promised King David that one of his descendants would ultimately come to reign on his throne forever, and He would be the perfect King, desired of all nations, the one who was truly fit to govern rightly.
