With Whom He is Pleased!
Yesterday, I closed with the angels’ proclamation to the shepherds in Luke 2:14: “Glory to God in the highest! And on earth, peace and good will among men, with whom He is pleased!”
This has always struck me as an odd proclamation. God is declaring He is pleased with the very people among whom He is sending His Son for them to murder!
If this is what Scripture says, and Scripture cannot lie, then it must be true. How can it be?
It is very simple and the very center of the profundity of the Gospel:
God is so pleased with the children that are the crown jewel of His Creation that their redemption is worth the life of His Son.
¡Soli Deo Gloria!
