We’ve all seen images from the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II of England in 1953. An estimated three million of Elizabeth’s subjects descended on London hoping to catch a glimpse of their soon-to-be Queen. Certainly, much optimism and hope for days ahead was shared by Elizabeth’s people as they celebrated their new monarch taking the throne.

While the birth of a future monarch or the coronation of a king or queen is typically an occasion for joy and celebration, this isn’t always the case. For those who would fancy themselves a king or a queen instead of the rightful monarch, occasions such as these are actually ones of distress.

In Psalm 2, we see just such a response from the rulers and kings of the earth as they plot and scheme against the reign of God’s Anointed King. Join us as we learn why the birth of King Jesus is not an occasion for rebellion, but for rejoicing. See you in the morning!
