Winsome Words 8/3/15

Why doth the Lord Christ, at any time, thus hide himself in his glory from the faith of believers, that they cannot behold him? He doth it to stir us up in an eminent manner unto a diligent search and inquiry after him…He knows that those with whom he hath been graciously present–who have had views of his glory, although they have not valued the mercy and privilege of it as they ought– yet can they not bear a sense of his absence and his hiding himself from them.

… John Owen (1616-1683)
