"Pilgrim and Sojourner." - 1 Peter 2:11

 The glory of the Son of God - Jonathan Edwards

"Once as I rode out into the woods for my health in 1737, having alighted from my horse in a retired place, as my manner commonly has been, to walk for divine contemplation and prayer, I had a view that for me was extraordinary, of the glory of the Son of God, as Mediator between God and man, and His wonderful, great, pure and sweet grace and love, and meek and gentle condescension.

This grace that appeared so calm and sweet appeared also great above the heavens. The person of Christ appeared ineffably excellent with an excellency great enough to swallow up all thought and conception - which continued, as near as I can judge, about an hour; which kept me the greater part of the time in a flood of tears, and weeping aloud, I felt an ardency of soul to be, what I know not otherwise how to express, emptied and annihilated: to lie in the dust, and to be full of Christ alone, to love Him with a holy and pure love, to trust in Him, to live upon Him, to serve and follow Him, and to be perfectly sanctified and made pure, with a divine and heavenly purity." - Jonathan Edwards

May we never loose the awe of being in God’s presence. May the Lord’s glorious face shine on us and transform us into His image and likeness.
