When circumstances unsettle us or when life presents trials, to whom do we turn? Remembering Jesus Christ and His absolute supremacy can provide the believer great comfort, Alistair Begg emphasizes. Jesus’ work didn’t stop at the cross. He continues His ministry of reigning and ruling over the entire universe. When believers view the victory and supremacy of Christ as the basis for their safety and security, we can rest on His providence and rely on His power to navigate difficulty.
15For this reason, because I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love6 toward all the saints, 16I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers, 17that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, 18having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, 19and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his great might 20that he worked in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places, 21far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come. 22And he put all things under his feet and gave him as head over all things to the church, 23which is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all.
