When Adam and Eve sinned, God was not surprised. We don’t know why He allowed the fall to happen; as Alistair Begg reminds us, though, we can know that He is in control. The fall demonstrated that God’s primary concern is not our happiness, but that His name would be magnified. Though we have no merit of our own, He graciously saves us through His Son according to His providence. Through this matchless act of love, His glory shines.
