(James Smith, “The Love of Christ! The Fullness, Freeness, and Immutability of the Savior’s Grace Displayed!”)
“Herod is going to search for the child to kill Him!” Matthew 2:13
Christ, our Wondrous Lover met with sorry reception in our guilty, ungrateful world!
At first He was denied a dwelling–but soon it was determined to deprive Him of existence! O height of folly! O depth of wickedness! To attempt to murder this infant, is Deicide!
Foolish Herod! Shall divine predictions be falsified by you–and shall your lust frustrate God’s eternal purpose to save His people?
“She will give birth to a son, and you are to give Him the name Jesus, because He will save His people from their sins!” Matthew 1:21
