God is Well Pleased with Us in Christ

"What a support to our faith this is, that God the Father, the one offended by our sins, is so well-pleased with the work of redemption! And what a comfrot this is, that we see God's love resting on Christ with whom he is well-pleased, so that we might gather that he is just as well-pleased with us, if we are in Christ!...See here, for our comfort, a sweet agreement of all three persons: the Father gives a commission to Christ; the Spirit furnishes and sanctifies to it, and Christ himself executes the office of Mediator. Our redemption is founded upon the joint agreement of all three persons of the Trinity."
