Christ Eternal

Before the days of eternity the Lord Jesus Christ was one with the Father; He was the image of God, the outshining of His Glory. To manifest this Glory, to reveal the light of God's love, He came to our sin-darkened earth. Therefore it was prophesied *Isaiah7:14* ''Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign; Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call His name Immanuel'' [translated God with us]. Jesus is ''The Word of God'' God's thought made audible. Not alone for His earthborn children was this revelation given. Our little world is a lessen book of the universe. Both redeemed and unfallen beings will find in the cross of Christ their science and their song. They will see the Glory shining in the face of Jesus Christ is the Glory of self-sacrificing love. They will
see that
the law of life
for Earth and Heaven is the law of self-renouncing love. That love which ''seeketh not her own'' has It's source in the heart of God and is manifested in Jesus, the meek and lowly One. In the beginning Christ laid the foundation of the Earth. His hand hung the world's in space and fashioned the flowers of the field. He filled the Earth with beauty, and the air with song. [see Psalms65:6; 96:5]. Upon all things Jesus wrote the message of the Fathers love. Now sin has marred God's perfect work, yet that handwriting remains. Nothing, save the selfish heart of man, lives unto itself. Every tree and shrub and leaf pours forth the element of life without which neither man nor animal could live; a man and animal in turn, minister to the life of tree and shrub. The ocean receives streams from every land, but takes to give.
The mists ascending from it fall in showers to water the Earth, that it may bring forth and bud. The Angels of Glory find their Joy in giving. They bring light from above, and move upon the human Spirit to bring the lost into fellowship with Christ Jesus. But turning from all lesser representations, we behold God in Jesus. We see that it is the Glory of God to give, *John7:18* "He who speaks of his himself seeks his own Glory; but he who seeks the Glory of the One who sent Him is true, and no unrighteousness is in Him." Christ recieved from God, but He took to give. Through the Son, the Fathers life flows out to all; through the Son it returns in Joyous service, a tide of love, to the great source of all. Thus through Christ Jesus the circuit of beneficence is complete.
