Your Throne, O God, Is Forever

In contrast to angels, who are God's servants (Hebrews 1:7) and who
are subject to change, like all creatures, the author to the Hebrews shows
from Psalm 45 that the Son is addressed as "God" by God, forever occupies an
eternal throne, and rules in utter righteousness. The Psalm also brings us
into view as the divine King's "companions," who share the joyful
celebration of his anointing and enthronement. Jesus is the king who can be
trusted to rule our lives and circumstances with absolute control, for he
would never succumb to power's corrupting influence.
