One Perfection God Did Not Display When He Created the Heavens and the Earth

February 22, 2012

God's perfect plan to have relationship with us was not fully revealed until the birth of His Son, Jesus Christ.

But there was one perfection which God could not display before He created the heavens and the earth. One glory unrecognized, unrevealed. One transcendent virtue more magnificent than all the others, but which could only be proven, believed, and displayed if God made Adam and Eve and a multitude of human beings.

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son that whoever believes in Him should not perish but everlasting life” (John 3:16).

“For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—through perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die—But God demonstrates His love for us that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:6-8).

“God our Savior desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one god, and there is one mediator between God and man, the man Christ Jesus” (1 Timothy 2:4-5).

And oh! How shall we express our love for Him? Superlatives fail to express the worth of His name. Frederick M. Lehman wrote with a sigh,

Could we with ink the ocean fill,
And were the skies of parchment made,
To write the love of God above,
Would drain the ocean dry.
Nor could the scroll contain the whole,
Though stretched from sky to sky.

Christ was glad because He had the Father’s love, and we have the Father’s love, and so we are glad. The Bible says, “Therefore the redeemed of the Lord shall return and come with singing into Zion and everlasting joy shall be upon their heads. They shall obtain gladness and joy. And sorrow, and mourning shall flee away” (Isaiah 51:11).
