God is the sovereign ruler over everything that happens both good and evil -- Bruce Ware

God is exclusively God, incomparably God, and through that deserves ultimate glory because he is the sovereign ruler over everything that happens in heaven and earth, including sovereign ruler over good and evil. Because God is good, he is light, then his control of evil would be for what purpose? For good purposes, that he will bring about only through the evil things that take place. The supreme example of this in the Bible is the cross of Christ. This clip is excerpted from the sermon "The Incomparable Glory of God," the second part of our sermon series Best Sermon Ever. It was preached by Dr. Bruce Ware out of Isaiah 40--45 at Mars Hill Downtown Bellevue and released on August 18.
