“A Song About Kings”

The Songs of Our Savior

Preached by: Phill Howell | 07/18/21

Scripture/Text: Psalm 8:1-9; The big idea of this week's sermon from Psalm 8:1-9 is that Yahweh is the king of creation and his power is shown to be perfect through weak humans. Psalm 8 is a commentary on the creation account of Genesis and as such it focuses on the amazing role of humans within God's creation and purpose. God created humanity to serve as his rulers over the earth, but humanity failed in this calling and the result is that death reigns. Throughout the rest of Scripture, and particularly Hebrews 2:5-9, we learn that it is Jesus, the true human being, who through his own suffering, weakness, and ultimately death, restores humans to their place as God's rulers over creation and gives victory even over death itself.
