In the words of the classic hymn: “Christ shall have dominion over land and sea; earth’s remotest regions shall his empire be.” Nothing will finally stand in the way of Christ’s kingdom. He will never allow a foe of the church to get so strong as to wipe out His gospel, and church history bears witness to this very fact. We should be confident in every circumstance because the Lord guarantees the success of His mission, which means His people will win in the end.
The fact that God is not merely our friend is actually a great benefit for us. Mere friends cannot rescue us from sin. Good pals cannot provide the all-sufficient help we need to make it through our trials and tribulations. Only the sovereign Lord of all can give us such things. Let us take care to approach our Maker with the reverence and praise that He deserves, and may we always exalt Him as our loving and sovereign Master and King.
