Christ was crucified and raised in accordance with the Scriptures. He ascended and is seated in exaltation, reigning until He comes again to judge the living and the dead and to restore His creation to Himself in all glory. Between this history and magnificent future, Christ rules His people—the church—according to the Scriptures in the presence and power of the Holy Spirit. This message traces the path between the historical events of Christ humiliated and exalted to the ongoing, present-day progress of His church. It highlights the place of the New Testament Scriptures in the life of the church, underscoring the vital necessity of being committed to the exposition of Scripture, for the promotion of Christ to God’s glory and man’s joy.
