We Shall Behold Him

My endless, blissful theme is ever new; Jesus and His salvation will never wear out. I would never have any sit down satisfied, but still press on after fuller revelations of Jesus; for there are heights and depths in the love of Christ of which the most favored have no conception, and there are beauties and glories in His person which none have yet beheld.

Oh! I would have none rest short of the revelation of His person, though His benefits are all precious. Things of earth often repeated grow stale, but the same view of a precious Jesus a thousand times over is ever new. When Jesus shows Himself again to us, is He not as a lamb newly slain; and is not His sacrifice, as an odor of a sweet smell, as fragrant as though but just offered without spot unto God? Oh, yes, He is ever the same without sameness, and will be to all eternity. The glories, beauties, and excellences of His person are infinite; and from these boundless sources our finite minds will be feasted forever and ever.

Isaiah 33:17 ... Thine eyes shall see the king in his beauty: they shall behold the land that is very far off.
