“The revelation made of Christ in the blessed gospel is far more excellent, more glorious, more filled with rays of divine wisdom and goodness than the whole creation, and the just comprehension of it, if attainable, can contain or afford. Without this knowledge, the mind of man, however priding itself in other inventions and discoveries, is wrapped up in darkness and confusion.
This revelation therefore deserves our deepest thoughts, the best of our meditations, and our utmost diligence and energy in them. For if our future blessedness shall consist in living where Christ lives, and beholding His glory, what better preparation can there be for it than a constant previous contemplation of that glory as revealed in the gospel, that by a view of it we may be gradually transformed into the same glory?” (John Owen, The Glory of Christ, p. 25-26)
