If It Ain’t Good, Then God Ain’t Done

We live in a fallen world. Sin and evil do exist, not just as some sort of punishment, but also to give us a choice.  Without the option to do wrong, the choice for Jesus would not mean anything.  It would be like an election in which only one person is on the ballot. No, God wants us to be presented with the option of either selfishly serving ourselves or serving Him and then deciding to choose Him. That is when it really means something.

Yes, evil is real. We are free to choose it if we want.  The good news, however, is that Satan does not have unlimited power.  There is no battle going on between God and Satan that has an uncertain outcome.  Satan can only do what God allows him to do.  God is in charge, and in the end, He wins. Period.

We can take comfort in knowing that God always finishes what He starts.  As God’s children, we can know that “If it ain’t good, then God ain’t done.”  Revelation 15:3 says that God’s ways are “just and true.”  This means that if God promises something He will always come through, and it will ultimately turn out for good.
