Christ's Supremacy

In light of the sermon yesterday: I gave you a wrong scripture reference regarding the O.T. quote that Matthew gives us in 13:35. This quote is not from Isaiah 6 but Psalm 78:2 - a psalm of Asaph. My apologies.

I also came across a fitting quote from N.T. scholar, F.F. Bruce, regarding Christ's supremacy regardless of what circumstances may superficially indicate to the contrary. Here it is...

"The truth of Christ's supremacy over all the powers in the universe is one which modern man sorely needs to learn. He is oppressed by a sense of impotence in the grasp of merciless forces which he can neither overcome nor escape. These forces may be Frankenstein monsters of man's own creation, or they may be horrors outside his conscious control; either way, he is intimidated by the vastness of those fateful currents which threaten to sweep him on to destruction, whether he will or no.

And to modern man in his frustration and despair, the full- orbed gospel of Christ, as Paul presents it to the Colossians, is the one message of hope. Christ crucified and risen is Lord of all; all the forces in the universe, well-disposed and ill- disposed, are subject to Him. To be united to Christ by faith is to throw off the thraldom of hostile powers, to enjoy perfect freedom, to gain the mastery over the dominion of evil, because Christ's victory is ours."

... F. F. Bruce (1910-1990/1), The Apostolic Defense of the Gospel, London: Inter-Varsity Press, 1959, Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 1959, p. 78-79 See the book at http://cqod.com/b/r3716
See also 1 Cor. 15:57; Ps. 2:8; Isa. 9:6-7; Matt. 28:18; 1 Cor. 15:25-27; Eph. 1:18-23; Phil. 2:9-11; Col. 1:5-6,16-18,27; 2:9-10; 3:1-3; 1 Pet. 3:21-22; Rev. 5:12-13

Have a good and joyful week. Our God reigns! Forever!
