Dante called his great epic poem the Divine Comedy, not because it was in
any way humorous, but because it ended happily. That’s the true meaning of tragedy and comedy, whether the drama ends sadly or happily. For those who refuse God’s grace, this life is the utmost tragedy, ending in outer darkness, weeping, wailing and gnashing of teeth. But for us who are Christ’s, there is
a wonderful inheritance, “the crown of life” (James 1:12) which is an unfading “crown of glory "I Pet. 5:3). No real tragedy is possible to you, Christian. Since you belong to Him, He (and all that He has and is) belong to you as your rightful inheritance. If you could know and believe “what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints” (Eph. 1:18), you would always “rejoice greatly with joy unspeakable and full of glory” (I Pet. 1:8).
