Glory to God in the highest heaven,
and on earth peace to those on whom his favour rests.
The birth of Jesus Christ as the Saviour of the world was not because of the deserving behaviour of humanity, making God pleased with us. Rather it was because God, was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross (Col.1:19-20). God’s fullest delight was invested in, and expressed in, the only One with whom he declared he was well-pleased. (Lk.3:22)
