Out of the Ivory Palaces
Each December as we draw closer to the traditional day when we celebrate Christ’s birth, our minds cannot help but think of the manger scene with Mary, Joseph, and the visiting shepherds gathered around the newborn King. We all know that the baby grew up to fulfill His mission of redemption, but what drove Him to do it? What caused the Son of God Incarnate to leave His heavenly abode to suffer for fallen sinners? Why did He leave His glory? In this message, Dr. Sproul reminds us of the great cost of our redemption, and why it is that Christ decided to pay it.
