In Psalm 82, God takes His place in the council of the gods, the rulers of the earth, and He judges them. They have failed to ensure righteousness and enact justice, and have completely misunderstood why they were given power and authority. As a result, the foundations of the earth are shaken, and human society suffers. God therefore pronounces a judgment against the gods: though their position is exalted and their power great, they will die just like all men. In the face of the failure of the gods, Asaph calls on the true God to arise and judge the earth. As we come to worship today, we both acknowledge that in Jesus, the true judge has arisen, and we echo Asaph’s cry that all nations would come under Jesus’ rule as His inheritance.
