God’s eternal day

From the March 26, 2018 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel


The crucifixion hung over the world, a deathly pall, a crushing curtain of devastated hopes, the seeming defeat of good bowing before the cross. But wait! Before the whispering treachery, before the payment of envy 1 could pass from hand to hand, before the night of agony at Gethsemane, God’s promise stood, inviolable— “Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased!”  2   The promise arched over all mankind, tenderly caring for Jesus and lifting humanity above the waves of hate and ignorance.
