Imagine - RIGHT NOW - the place that Jesus occupies as He sits beside His Heavenly Father, at His right hand. His throne is everlasting and glorious. In His mighty hand, He holds the "scepter of justice" - a justice He has fully earned and proven at the cost of His own blood. He has, by that very sacrifice, allowed that we might know righteousness and be set free from the wickedness He hates. In the Heavenlies, He has been seated firmly forever and His head has been anointed with the kingly oil of joy.
And what does He pour out upon His sons and daughters?
From Acts 2: "God has raised this Jesus to life, and we are all witnesses of it. Exalted to the right hand of God, he has received from the Father the promised Holy Spirit and has poured out what you now see and hear…"
Brothers and sisters, may His "oil of joy" - His poured-out Holy Spirit - be the truest thing about our day today! He, our Savior, rules and reigns in order that we might know Him and make Him known; that is all this day is about!
