Go to Christ first

“In Believing, what you first look at, you expect stability from, and make the foundation of your hope. Go to Christ in sight of your sin and misery, not of your grace and holiness. Have nothing to do with your graces and sanctification, — they will but veil Christ, — till you have seen Him first. He that looks upon Christ through his own graces, is like one that sees the sun in water, which wavers and moves as the water does. Look upon Christ only as shinning in the firmament of the Father’s love and grace, — then you will see Him in His own glory, which is unspeakable. That will comfort you.”

- Thomas Wilcox, “Honey Out of the Rock“
