To Behold TheGlory

To behold the glory of Jesus means that we began to find Christ beautiful for who He is in Himself. It means a kind of prayer in which we are not simply coming to Him to get His forgiveness, His help for our needs, His favor and blessing. Rather, the consideration of His character, words, and work on our behalf becomes inherently satisfying, enjoyable, comforting, and strengthening. 

-John Owen (1616-1683)
