beholding his glory

"One of the greatest privileges and advancements of believers, both in this world and unto eternity, consists in their beholding the glory of Christ."

"No man shall ever behold the glory of Christ by sight hereafter, who does not in some measure behold it by faith here in this world."

"Grace is a necessary preparation for glory, and faith for sight."

"For nothing can perfectly comprehend that which is infinite, but what is itself infinite. Therefore the blessed and blessing sight which we shall have of God will be always 'in the face of Jesus Christ.'”

~ John Owen, from The Glory of Christ
