Charles Hodge – The Source of All Good

16 Jan

[Commenting on Ephesians 1:2: “Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.”]

Peace, according to how the corresponding Hebrew word is used, means well-being in general. It includes all blessings flowing from the goodness of God. The apostle prays to Christ and seeks from him blessings which only God can bestow. Christ therefore was to him the object of habitual worship. He lived in communion with Christ as a divine person – the ground of his confidence and the source of all good.
