‘Then I was beside Him as a master-craftsman;
and I was daily His delight.’

Proverbs 8:30 (NKJV)

In the first chapter of the Bible, we read that, God saw all that he had made, and it was very good (1:31). John tells us at the start of his Gospel that, without him nothing was made that has been made (1:3). The Master-craftsman at work! A perfect creation marred by sin but redeemed by love. His love – unlimited, unquenchable and all-forgiving.
Our Lord Jesus, who was at his Father’s side throughout creation, was the One in whom the Father delighted continually. He opened heaven to declare, ‘This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well-pleased.’ (Matt.17:5) What a Saviour!
