He Rules The World (December 17, 2014)

When recently asked to name the “biggest problem facing the country,” the economy and jobs topped the list, even though those two things are statistically the best in years. At the bottom of the list was “morality” at 1 percent. 

Our unwillingness to recognize our sinfulness brings to mind one of the lesser-known verses of “Joy to the World”:

He rules the world with truth and grace

And makes the nation’s prove

The glories of his righteousness

And wonders of His love.

In other words, God does rule the world, regardless of what we think, and the fruitlessness of pursuing our own ways will eventually “prove” the “glories of his righteousness.” When that happens, as the hymn writer said, we will “wonder” at the love of a King who would so patiently wait for us to prepare Him room.
