Christ as Sovereign Lord in Psalm 24


This psalm, as the last two have been, concerns specifically the Lord Jesus Christ. These three make up a trilogy of beautiful psalms concerning Christ:

  • Psalm 22, Christ as Savior;
  • Psalm 23, Christ as Shepherd;
  • Psalm 24, Christ as Sovereign.

This psalm begins by stating the right of sovereignty of the Lord, and consequently, the difficult requirements upon those who may dwell with Him. It ends with Christ’s qualifications for a triumphant entrance in glory into the gates of heaven, which can also be read as an appeal for all to receive Christ into the gates of their hearts.
