Barclay: redemption eternally

Thursday, August 2, 2012
    ... for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we live; and there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things came and through whom we live.
    —1 Corinthians 8:6 (NIV)
    To speak of the pre-existence of the Son is to say that God did not begin to redeem men when Jesus Christ came into this world, but that throughout all ages the redeeming power and the sacrificial work of God had been at work. To speak of the pre-existence of the Son means that the love which was demonstrated on Calvary is an eternal movement of the heart of God to men.
    ... William Barclay (1907-1978), The Mind of St. Paul, Harper & Row, 1975, p. 59 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have provided for us from all eternity.
