To save for another season

In reading G Campbell Morgan’s Crises of the Christ, I came upon this passage:

“…when the work presses, and the battle thickens, and the day seems long in coming, it is good for the heart to remember that the present conflict is with defeated foes, and that there is no room for question as to the final issue, for the Man of Nazareth is not only seated in the place of authority, He carries forward the work of active administration.”

The burdens of ministry seems to press upon so suddenly and so heavily that they swallow us with their weight, yet how this fact, this truth of the resurrected life of Jesus lifts the soul! He sits on the throne, and our foes are defeated.
