Today’s Quote – Redemption (Edwards)

Jonathan Edwards (The End for Which God Created the World; in God’s Passion for His Glory):

…the glory of God is the ultimate end of the work of redemption, which is the chief work of providence towards the moral world, as is abundantly manifest from Scripture.  For the whole universe is put in subjection to Jesus Christ; all heaven and earth, angels, and men, are subject to him [Phil. 2:10; 3:21; Col. 1:18; Eph. 1:21; Heb. 2:8], as executing this office; and are put under him to that end, that all things may be ordered by him, in subservience to the great designs of his redemption.
