Our topic this week is God’s supremacy. Supremacy is the highest, or the quality of having more authority, power, or status than anyone or anything.
We use the word supremacy to describe sports figures and teams. We use it to describe our military when we say things like we have air, ground, and water supremacy. China and North Korea call their heads of government some form of supreme leader. These titles are misnomers. Their authority, their status is not supreme. Artists like Michael Jackson have been called the king of pop. Others have been given similar titles. Supremacy is something that the human condition longs for but only God possesses. We go to great lengths to try to reduce the gap between God and man, but the truth is that we can’t imagine this gap appropriately with our finite minds.
God is Supremely Good
God’s supremacy includes His power and it includes His authority and even His goodness. He is supremely good.
Martin Luther said to Erasmus, “Your thoughts of God are too human.” We can make the same charge of leaders in the church today. We even blindly accept the teaching of those who caricature God. The most dishonoring and degrading ideas about God are now held almost everywhere.
A.W. Pink said, “the god of this twentieth century no more resembles the Supreme Sovereign of Holy Scripture than does the dim flickering of a candle resemble the glory of the midday sun. The god who is now talked about in the average pulpit, spoke of in the ordinary Sunday school, and mentioned in much of the religious literature of the day is the figment of human imagination, an invention of syrupy sentimentality. The heathen outside of Christianity manufacture a god out of wood and stone, while the millions of heathen inside of Christianity manufacture a god out of their own carnal mind. In reality, they are but atheists, for there is no other possible alternative between an absolutely supreme God, and no God at all.”
Yes. God is supremely good. We can rest in and trust in Him.
