The Scepter Returned

Back

This was a voluntary sacrifice. (Jesus coming to earth) Jesus might have remained at the Father’s side. He might have retained the glory of heaven, and the homage of the angels. But He chose to give back the scepter into the Father’s hands, and to step down from the throne of the universe, that He might bring light to the benighted, and life to the perishing.

DA 22.4

What an amazing love Christ has for us! If we could only fully grasp it we would never stop sharing his love, forgiveness, and grace with others.
