Extract: Think of the Angels

Think of the angels who witnessed the creation, and the flowing out of the Creator's power in the perfection and beauty of Eden, having the thought that the One putting forth all this beauty and goodness would be the One to be nailed to the cross as a malefactor, and put into a cave in the earth, and nothing too bad for man to say of Him!
Again, could there have been such a thought in heaven as that One treated like a malefactor, would not only be raised up and be in heaven, but be seated on the throne of God—God's delight? No! Never!
And it is one of the most difficult things for me to get the thought that according to what I was in nature, it was as unlikely for God to work in me, and out of such materials to fashion a perfect vessel, as for His Son to come down and die.
