Consider Him (cont.)

“It is because we think so little, and to so little purpose, on Christ, that we know so little about Him, that we love Him so little, trust in Him so little, so often neglect our duty, are so much influenced by ‘things seen and temporal’ and so little by ‘things unseen and eternal’…It is because men do not know Christ that they do not love Him; it is because they know Him so imperfectly that they love Him so imperfectly.  The Truth about Him as the Great Prophet and the Great High Priest well deserves consideration, it is the ‘manifold wisdom of God’. It requires it; it cannot be understood by a careless and occasional glance”.
Ibid, p.157
