SCRIPTURE READING:
Psalm 24:7-10

Lift up your heads, you gates;
be lifted up, you ancient doors,
that the King of glory may come in.
Who is this King of glory?
The Lord strong and mighty,
the Lord mighty in battle.
Lift up your heads, you gates;
lift them up, you ancient doors,
that the King of glory may come in.
Who is he, this King of glory?
The Lord Almighty—
he is the King of glory.

SIGNIFICANCE:
The LORD JESUS CHRIST fulfills the vision of Psalm 24, entering into our lives as the most resplendent ruler of all.

Dear Father, I join all heaven in honoring the most glorious King at His triumphant entrance through the ancient gates into the eternal city. What a wonderful progression I see in Your holy Word: Psalm 22 is “The Psalm of the Cross” and Psalm 23 is “The Psalm of the Shepherd”; then, in Psalm 24, “The Song of the Ascension,” the crucified Savior, our Shepherd, is the ascended Head and Crown of the universe, and the matchless King of Glory! I rejoice that such glory means that this mediator King is the weightiest of all kings, the most worthy of glory, the King of ALL glory! I marvel that the King of Glory is proclaimed five times in just the closing stanza of Psalm 24. Hallelujah! The Lord Jesus Christ is the King of Glory, the King of Glory, the King of Glory, the King of Glory, the King of Glory! I pray He will very soon fulfill His kingship in His Church, and over His Church, and over all things on behalf of His Church. I ask these things in His majestic name and for His glory. Amen.
