God’s Emblem Of Power
Your throne, O God, is for ever and ever: the scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdom. – Psalm 45:6 (AMP).
A scepter is a rod or wand borne in the hand as an emblem of regal or imperial power. God’s emblem of His power is righteousness.
What did our righteous God do? He sent His Son, Jesus, to die for us, to be punished for all our sins, so that we could be in right-standing with God.
He showed off His power by making us righteous through the shed blood of Jesus (II Corinthians 5:21).
