There are competitions galore. Track and Field competitions, swimming, football, soccer, basketball, even political competitions when we go to the polls and vote. You get the idea.
One competition this world is in, and cannot win is the competition that is going on against God and His Word. The following is what the Psalmist recognized in his day…
“Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?” Psalm 2:1 (KJV)
“The heathen” is another word for the nations of the world. Hey world! You cannot win against God. It is already decided. Jesus won on the cross. The enemy is defeated. The bodily resurrection of Christ is the evidence. Submit to Him or perish in your sins, and rebellion.
The question of the Psalmist is a great one, “Why do the heathen rage?” It is a foolish endeavor. Believe Jesus and be delivered from your condemnation.
“He that believeth on Him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.” John 3:18
