The great mystery that surrounds Christ is left untouched. Neither love nor thought of ours can reach the heart of it, whilst still we see Him as through a glass darkly. When we behold Him as He is, face to face, then, and only then, shall we know fully what He was, and what He did for us. Whilst we strain our eyes to catch the mysterious vision, but dimly visible, we are in danger of becoming blind to that human, simple, homely life, spent amongst us as the pattern of our days. “If any man think that he knoweth anything, he knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know. But if any man love God, the same is known of Him.” Happy they who are content with being known of God.

Christmas, 1874.
