The Power of God Displayed in the Redemption of Man
Psalm 118:16
The right hand of the LORD is exalted: the right hand of the LORD does valiantly.

I. A SUBLIME ATTRIBUTE OF GOD. "The right hand of the Lord" represents His power in its loftiest manifestation, its sovereignty, its resistlessness, its omnipotence.


1. The personal history and work of the Messiah.

2. The application of the work of the Messiah to individual men.

3. The progress of the economy founded upon the work of the Messiah, and its wide diffusion throughout the earth.

III. THE EMOTIONS WHICH THE CONTEMPLATION OF THESE ACHIEVEMENTS PRODUCES IN PIOUS MINDS. Our rejoicing is to be connected with, and ensured by, practical manifestations. They are these: implicit trust on the Saviour's mediation; abounding gratitude for the Saviour's goodness; devoted obedience to the Saviour's commandments; zealous activity for the Saviour's glory. And as those, who are set apart by Him to be the instruments in the advancement of His empire, by our self-denial, our activity, and our prayers, we are to attempt the ingathering of His people, and the advancement of those grand and wonderful designs we have presented, which are to be fulfilled in the recovery of the world.

(J. Parsons.)
