Contemplation of Christ’s Glory

“The stronghold of the contemplation of Christ’s glory affords the soul rest, for it will be made evident that our troubles grow on the root of an over-valuation of temporal things.  The mind is its own greatest troubler.  But in this state a due contemplation of the glory of Christ will restore and compose the mind.  A sense of God’s love is that alone in which we ultimately find rest in the midst of all troubles (Rom. 5:2-5); there are means to be used on our part to make us ready and disposed to receive the Spirit’s communications.  Among these the principal is the contemplation of Christ’s glory.  This is what will carry us cheerfully through death.”  Notes by Mike Stohlmeyer on John Owen’s “The Glory of Christ” (Vol. 1) p. 279 (Banner of Truth)

About Maureen Stohlmeyer

Grateful to have been married to my wonderful husband Michael for nearly 35 years who is now with the Lord, I would like to share from writers from the past who have strengthened our faith and walk with Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer. His walk with God was deeply enriched by the writings of authors from the past and I dedicate this blog to him and to them.
