Down From His Glory!
What a wonderful theme is found in this title and the accompanying songs. Our Lord did not cling on to His heavenly glory but came to this sinful world, knowing His destiny. He was on a rescue mission: “To seek and to save that which was lost (Luke 19:10). He knew that He would not fail to “Save His people from their sins” (Matt.1:21). What is amazing is that God didn’t have to save any one! He set no plan in motion to save any of the angels who sinned (2 Pet.2:4ff), and in the Old Testament, when God flooded the world, He saved only 8 people! However, through Christ’s life and death, He plans to ‘bring many sons to glory (Heb.2:10). Thank God it wasn’t ‘Mission Impossible’, but ‘Mission Accomplished’!
