We are the champions... my friend

That is exactly right. We (Christians) are the champions and our story is one of victory OR, to quote the Prophet Isaiah

Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end, on the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time forth and forevermore. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will do this.

The Bible says that the Lord God has appointed His Son has heir and slowly but surely things are being brought in line with His purposes. Nothing or no one can stop it. We win. Now why all this exuberance on a Friday afternoon? Well earlier today, I was perusing some stats on China here. Most of the stuff there is truly interesting (e.g. China executes three times as many people as the rest of the world!). What really got my juices really going though was the comment that there are already more Christians in China than Italy, and it is on track to become the largest centre of Christianity in the world. Now can you believe that? Here is a country that tried to exterminate Christianity in the mid 20th Century and it is now headed towards being a major foci of the Christian faith? I now see what King David meant when he wrote "The One enthroned in heaven laughs" Laughing indeed!
