Several people have noted that Christians have had a difficult summer, as Western culture has stepped up their celebration of sin. But in the midst of moral chaos and hostility toward Biblical teaching, we need to remember that the Lord maintains complete control over everything. While we absolutely should grieve over the degradation that permeates the world, and even creeps in to evangelical churches, we can take great joy in our God’s sovereignty.
Today’s hymn offers encouragement to fix our gaze on Christ. He has full power, even over those who presume to oppose Him. Consequently, in spite of all the wickedness we see growing around us, we have confidence that He will ultimately have His way.
