The Glory of Christ

This coming weekend, I'm speaking for a retreat in which the theme is "More Than Meets the Eye." The objective is to show forth that the more clearly we see Christ, the more we're transformed into His image. About 5-6 weeks ago when I was first approached about the retreat, I decided I should reread John Owen's book called the "Glory of Christ," which speaks to this subject better than anything else I've ever read. Here's a great quote I came across while preparing:

“All that may be known of God for our salvation, especially his wisdom, love, goodness, grace and mercy on which the life of our souls depends, are represented to us in all their splendor in and through Christ. No wonder then that Christ is glorious in the eyes of believers!”
