The Transforming Power of Beholding the Glory of Christ (John Owen)

“Some talk much of imitating Christ and following his example. But no man will ever become ‘like him’ by trying to imitate his behavior and life if they know nothing of the transforming power of beholding his glory…

If we regularly beheld the glory of Christ our Christian walk with God would become more sweet and pleasant, our spiritual light and strength would grow daily stronger and our lives would more gloriously represent the glory of Christ. Death would be most welcome to us. 

Is Christ, then, glorious in our eyes? Do we see the Father in him? Do we daily meditate on the wisdom, love, grace, goodness, holiness and righteousness of God as revealed to us in Christ?”

– John Owen, The Glory of Christ (Carlisle: Banner of Truth Trust, 1994), 21.
