To Be Nigh Unto God…

“To be nigh unto God, and to be like unto him, are the same. To be always with him, and perfectly like him, according the capacity of our nature, is to be eternally blessed. To live by faith in the contemplation of the glory of God in Christ, is that initiation into both, whereof we are capable in this world.”

– John Owen –

from The Person of Christ; volume 1 of Works, page 52
