A Better Prince

Psalm 146 contrasts the uncertain and temporary help given by princes to the forever faithful and just rule of the Lord. There is no salvation in man, for as soon as he dies, his promises and plans go with him, but Lord will reign forever. The blessings of His rule include justice for the oppressed, food for the hungry, liberty for the captives, sight for the blind, and care for sojourners, widows, and orphans. As we come to worship today in light of the life of Jesus Christ, we are putting our trust in the heavenly Prince of Peace who has indeed shown us the love of God. Let us sing praises to God as long as we live!
