Worship with Fear and Trembling

Psalm 2 is a bold proclamation of Christ’s kingship, and a stern warning to those who haven’t acknowledged His rule. In light of Christ’s rule, and His mission to subdue the whole earth, Psalm 2 instructs us to worship in a certain way: with fear and trembling. Because we have come to enjoy closer fellowship with God in the New Covenant, the stakes are much higher, and it is all the more important for us to worship with fear and trembling. In light of the cross, we see more clearly the depths of our sin, and the seriousness of the wrath of God. Meditate on the kingly authority of Jesus, and worship with a sense of awe at His majesty and power.
