Charles Wesley amuses me. Or maybe it’s the Lord and His use of Charles Wesley that tickles my sense of irony. At any rate, his brother John typically receives credit for founding the Methodist denomination, which preaches an Armimian theology. Yet Charles Wesley’s hymns frequently celebrate the sovereignty of God.
Today’s hymn reminds me that, because God is sovereign, we can rejoice in all situations.That’s surely a comfort to Christians of both theological persuasions.
