King of the Nations (Romans 1:5-7)

At the center of all human history stands the risen Lord Jesus. His resurrection from the dead is, without a doubt, the single most significant event that has ever occurred in the story of our world. And both his cross and his empty tomb concern the entire world—every nation and all creation. God’s gospel, the good news that his Son, Jesus, is the risen and exalted king, demands a response from the world. In this sermon, pastor Matt explains that the good news of God’s Son is for the honor of his name and the joy of the nations. God sent his Son into world that all might be saved through him, that all might come and glorify the name of the Lord, the God of grace and peace, the King of the nations.
