Beloved, though Jesus Christ and the gospel has been under constant attack from rebellious and unbelieving enemies, He can never be stopped, extinguished, or conquered. He lives and He reigns, as His word testifies, and as He will throughout eternity.
What comfort and courage this truth should bring to every Christian! Though as God’s people we can, and will be, often mocked, ridiculed, rejected, marginalized, threatened, harassed, and even beaten and killed, absolutely NO ONE who opposes God will win! Jesus is real, He does reign, and the Gospel is true.
Let us then all the more boldly seek the Lord, be pure, do good, preach Christ, and fear not, being convinced and confident that, “…there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name (Jesus) under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12)
