The King is Worthy

The King is Worthy

Although we all have given in to many types of temptations and done so often, there is One who has never given in. Jesus has never sinned. He has looked Evil in the face and never flinched. He trusted and obeyed the will of his Father and has made a way through the cross for you to be made righteous. The main idea of this passage is to demonstrate that Jesus [the New Adam/the True Son] is worthy, or qualified, to be the Holy King who could provide righteousness to the citizens of his Kingdom. This is the King was anointed/baptized by John the Baptist, filled with the Spirit, and affirmed by the Father. His baptism demonstrated how King Jesus would fulfill or accomplish all righteousness; through his death, burial, and resurrection.

From Series: "Your Kingdom Come"

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand! Those were the first words that Jesus used when he began to preach. He went throughout Galilee, teaching and proclaiming the gospel of the Kingdom. He said that the Kingdom of Heaven was for the poor in spirit, for the meek, for the pure in heart, and for the persecuted. He said that the self-righteous could never enter the Kingdom of Heaven. He told us that the thing we should be seeking first and foremost in this life is the Kingdom of God and his righteousness. If we do that, he will take care of everything else. Let’s abandon our anxious pursuit of the treasures of this earthly kingdom and instead live as citizens of the Kingdom of God.
