As usual, I caught part of the gist of this paragraph, but missed a ton of it! Until MacArthur provided insight once again in his sermon Restoring the Disheartened Pastor's Joy.
He's not only always leading us, but He's always leading us triumphantly. We're always marching in the great parade. We can never lose. We follow the conquering Hero in the victory parade through life, not as captives, not as prisoners headed to judgment, but as co-conquerors in the great triumph over sin and death and hell.
...and through us spreads everywhere the fragrance of the knowledge of him....
We also have the privilege of being the instruments God uses to spread the Good News, the privilege of influence - for the winning team!
Not because we are worthy, or we deserve the honour. And so we should not belittle it, just because we don't see the results or successes the way we want to. We can't quit when the going gets tough. You don't measure by results, you measure by privilege.
