All the glory, praises and honor be to the Holy Father in Jesus’ precious name !

It is indeed delighting to know that the Almighty God takes delight in His people. As the subject verse says, He delights in His people. And His people are the ones who believe and put their faith and hope in Him. Those who fear Him and humble themselves are certainly His own people. Though these people are meek, but their hope is in the unfailing love of the Almighty God as the following verse says:

No, the Lord ’s delight is in those who fear him, those who put their hope in his unfailing love.

Psalms 147:11 NLT

The Bible says that God is love and by His love alone we are saved. Truly, God so loved us that He gave His begotten Son. Yes, He loved as so much that He sent His Son to take our place on the Cross. The Son of God became Man for our sake. He who never knew sin became sin for us. He took upon Himself the whole sins of the mankind. As a sacrificial lamb, He died on the Cross to atone us from our own sins. Yes, Jesus died for us so that we may have life eternal through Him.

‘For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. ‘

John 3:16

God gave His own Son as an atonement for our sins. Jesus died on the Cross to give us victory over the eternal death. And those who humble themselves and believe in the Son of God has the eternal life. Very importantly, we are made righteous in the sight of the Almighty God with the shed blood of Christ. Emphatically, we are blessed to receive the crown of life by the victory of Christ on the cross.

In Jesus matchless name. Amen.
